A video showing a group of men singing songs for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP on a train went viral on social media recently. These people can be heard praising PM Modi and asking the public to vote for him in the Lok Sabha elections. Many users have shared the video claiming it to be from a Mumbai local train.
A Facebook user posted the viral post with a caption: मुम्बई की लोकल ट्रेनों में दिनदहाड़े ये क्या हो रहा है? अद्भुत प्रस्तुति- मोदी जी को वोट दीजियो लोकसभा चुनाव में । जय श्री राम । जय भाजपा (English translation: Mumbai local trains What is happening in broad daylight? Wonderful presentation — Vote for Modi ji in the Lok Sabha elections. Jai Shri Ram. Hail BJP)

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be misleading.
Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, we found a Facebook post on the official account of BJP Andhra Pradesh, dated April 12, 2019. The video in the post matches exactly with the viral clip, indicating that the latter has been online since 2019.
Searching further, we came across the same video published on the official Facebook account of Narendra Modi himself on April 11, 2019. Modi has shared this video thanking the people for showing trust in him and promising to work harder for the citizens of the country.
ABP News, too, reported about the video on their website around the same time, informing that the video went viral before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral video, claiming that people recently chanted praises for Narendra Modi in a Mumbai local train, is misleading.
