Fact Check:

The claim is false.

NewsMeter did a relevant keyword search and found the actual footage of the viral video.

In the original video, we can see the journalist simply paraphrased the TRS party's questions to the Union Minister. These words were used by a journalist seeking a response from Amit Shah to allegations leveled against the BJP.


We can also find the full video uploaded by V6 on their official YouTube page. The journalist asks that the central government did not provide any funds to the state during the floods in Hyderabad.


In response to the journalist's question, Amit Shah stated that the central government has provided more financial assistance to Hyderabad than to any other city. This part of the interview, in which the journalist was referring to TRS allegations, has been cut, and only the part of the journalist asking Amit Shah a direct question has been shared, with praise for the journalist's bravery. However, the full interview footage shows that the journalist simply paraphrased the TRS's allegation against the BJP.

Hence, the claim is false.
