Fact Check: Did Manish Sisodia Admit That AAP Is Involved In Rioting? NO, Viral Video Is Doctored

A video of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is being widely shared on social media. In the video, while addressing a media conference he says that according to a survey, AAP has been perceived to be the worst political party involved in rioting. He further states in the video that people voted for BJP to have leaders with highest education levels.  

The video is being shared on Facebook with a Hindi caption, “आम आदमी पार्टी के सबसे बड़े नेता मनीष सिसोदिया ने भी माना कि भाजपा देश की सबसे अच्छी पार्टी है जबकि आम आदमी पार्टी सबसे खराब पार्टी है”

(English translation: Aam Aadmi Party’s biggest leader Manish Sisodia also admitted that BJP is the best party in the country while Aam Aadi Party is the worst party)

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE. 

We listened to the video carefully and found many inconsistencies including multiple jump cuts besides out of sync audio. This suggested that this video might be doctored. Further, many users replying to the video also hinted that the video is altered. 

Taking a cue from this, we did a keyword search and found the same video uploaded on the official Twitter handle of Manish Sisodia on May 4, 2022. In the video, he can be seen heard saying the opposite of the viral video. In the original video, Sisodia claims that most people perceived BJP to be involved in rioting and hooliganism, according to a survey. He also states that many people believe AAP to have maximum educated leaders. 

The same video was also uploaded on the official YouTube of AAP. The viral part can be heard from 10 seconds to 2:25 seconds. 

Manish Sisodia also tweeted the results of the mentioned survey in a separate post. 

Thus, it is evident from the above information that the viral claim is false.
