A screengrab of a news clip by Aaj Tak is being shared online. The screengrab features a picture of Dushyant Chautala, president of the Jannayak Janata Party, with a quote attributed to him saying that “we will support BJP if need be”.
When NewsMobile fact-checked the claim, we found that the screengarb has been taken from an old video.
We ran a search on YouTube using keywords “Chautala bjp support Aaj Tak ” and found a video on their official YouTube channel dated Oct 18, 2014.
The title of the video reads, ‘Haryana Polls: INLD to extend support to BJP’.
“INLD chief Dushyant Chautala has announced its post-poll support to BJP to form a government in Haryana. He clarified that BJP is not their enemy and if needed then INLD is ready to support BJP, ” the description of the video said.
The screengrab can be seen at 0:35 seconds of the video.
This proves that this statement of Dushyant Chautala is from the 2014 Haryana Assembly Elections and not 2019.
