A video of a scuffle between few people — appears to be a meeting or a conference room — is doing the rounds on social media. The post claims that it is a recent video of the BJP leaders beating each other with shoes.
The post reads: एक मिनट में एक दूसरे पर जूता बरसाते , ये हैं बेशर्म संस्कारों वाले भाजपाई #बेशर्म_भाजपाई_संस्कार (English translation: Showering shoes on each other in just a minute. These are the shameless BJP people)
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be misleading.
Running the keyframes from the video through Reverse Image Search, we found that the same video had been shared by a journalist in 2019. The tweet, dated March 6, 2019, describes: “UP’s Sant Kabir Nagar BJP MP Sharad Tripathi attacked local BJP MLA Rakesh Baghel with a shoe during a public meeting after an altercation began over the MP’s name missing from inauguration plate.”

NewsMobile debunked the same video in 2020, when it was shared claiming that it is from a scuffle that took place between an AAP member and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh.
