Fact Check: Video Of Congress MLA’s Speech In Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly Shared As That Of Nepal

A video is being shared on social media with a claim that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was criticised in Nepal’s Parliament recently.

“#नेपाल के #सांसद में #मोदीजी के चर्चे ही चर्चा अब कुछ लोग बकलोल करेंगे कि हमारे देश पर आप कुछ ना बोले सच्चाई बोली है ,, शर्म आ रही है मुझे ” जो हमारे देश के प्रधान की नाकामयाबी गिना रहे हैं” the Facebook post read.

(Translation: Modiji was discussed in Nepal’s Parliament. Now some people will ask them to not speak about our country but they have spoken the truth. I am feeling ashamed for those who are counting the failure of our country’s Prime Minister.)

In the video, the minister can be heard questioning Prime Minister Modi on the money spent on his foreign visits and expenditure incurred in welcoming and hosting world leaders. He also questioned the money spent on Kumbh Mela and BJP offices before moving onto the topics of demonetisation, privatisation and fuel price hike.

Here’s the link to the above post.
