A video of businessman Mukesh Ambani and Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has gone viral on social media. It is being claimed that Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh is sitting in Ambani’s office discussing the issue of direct supply from farmers.
The Facebook caption read, “Punjab CM, Captain Amrinder Singh sitting in Ambani office discussing about direct purchase from farmers. Now he & his party are misleading the farmers on this issue. Congress are shameless hypocrites but never expected this from Captain sir ”
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be false and misleading.
On comparing the viral video and the YouTube video of 2017, we can clearly see the similarities. This makes it evident that the video of Mukesh Ambani and Capt Amarinder Singh is old and from 2017.
Moreover, we also found several pictures of the same meeting on Facebook which were shared by Capt Amarinder Singh on October 31, 2017.
Earlier also, NewsMobile had debunked a similar fact-check where Mukesh Ambani was seen shaking hands with Capt Amarinder Singh. At that time also, it was linked to the ongoing farmers’ protest.
Hence, the viral video of Mukesh Ambani meeting Capt Amarinder Singh is being falsely claimed to be recent. Don’t fall for false and misleading claims.
