Fact Check: Does This Video Show Students Returning From Ukraine Ignoring Prakash Javadekar? Here’s The Truth

A video is being circulated on social media with a claim that students ignored MP Prakash Javadekar when he was welcoming them after being evacuated from war-torn Ukraine under Operation Ganga.

The video is being shared with a sarcastic caption that can be translated into English as, “Children returning from Ukraine showed the mirror to Prakash Javadekar.”

(Original:यूक्रेन से आए बच्चों ने प्रकाश जावड़ेकर को भी आईना दिखाया!)

Here’s the link to the above post.


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

We extracted keyframes of the video and put them through Reverse Image Search. The search led us to the same video uploaded on YouTube with the title, “students ignored G Kishan Reddy | Indian Students | Ukraine| Bjp Minister.”

Taking a cue, we ran a search and found a video report on the same by DNA. The report mentioned that the video shows Union Minister of Tourism G. Kishan Reddy welcoming students who were evacuated from Ukraine. The report also mentioned that the video was shot in Delhi on March 2, 2022. 
The video was uploaded with the description, “DNA: Operation Ganga – Analysis of the ‘indecent’ character of Indian students Thousands of Indian students were trapped in Ukraine amid the war crisis. The Government of India brought these students back safely under Operation Ganga. But when these students reached back to India, the indecency they showed was astonishing.”
The pictures of the same were also shared by G. Kishan Reddy on Twitter.

Hence, from the above fact check, it is clear that the viral video does not show Prakash Javadekar but union minister G. Kishan Reddy. Hence, the post is misleading.
