A video of a huge crowd raising slogans in support of PM Narendra Modi and Delhi Police and chanting ‘Delhi Police Latta Baajo, hum tumhare saath hai’ (Delhi police beat them, we are with you) is making rounds on social media.
The video is being shared in the backdrop of the recent violent clashes between Delhi Police and farmers during the tractor rally.
“दिल्ली के लोग सड़कों पर उतरे मोदी और पुलिस के समर्थन में मोदी जी लठ बजाओ हम तुम्हारे साथ है दिल्ली पुलिस लठ बजाओ हम तुम्हारे साथ है।” the Hindi caption read.
(Translation: People of Delhi took to the streets in support of Modi and Police. Modi Ji beat the, we are with you. Delhi police beat them, we are with you.)

(Translation: The rally in Haryana is slightly different from the rallies in the country. Modi Ji beat them, we are with you)
Another YouTube channel shared the same video with the title suggesting that the video is of a rally in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) but the slogans raised were in support of PM Modi.
We also found that the same video was shared by Haryana BJP leader Jawahar Yadav on December 26, 2019.
