NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.

We ran a Reverse Image Search on one of the extracted keyframes of the video along with some keywords and found the original video on Aam Adami Party‘s YouTube Channel, dated October 18, 2016.

“…Vijay Rupani does as told by Amit Shah. So,  Amit Shah has a warning for Gujarat, Amit Shah has a challenge for Gujarat that I [Amit Shah] will continue to run Gujarat like this. If you stand up against me then you will be crushed and people of Gujarat, you can do whatever you want,” was the original statement.
The same video was also tweeted by BJP MLA and BJP Yuva Morcha president Harsh Sanghavi. Replying to the same, AAP Gujarat also put out a clarification along with the original clip.
Hence, from the above fact check, it is clear that the video in circulation is false and misleading.
