BJP Uttar Pradesh Shares Video Of Woman Thrashed In Amethi As Rajasthan

BOOM found a mother and her daughter were beaten up over a land dispute in Bhagwa village, Amethi on November 15, 2021.

A disturbing video of a woman and her daughter being attacked over an alleged land dispute in Bhagwa village of Amethi (Uttar Pradesh), is being falsely shared as Rajasthan.

Several social media pages of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have taken a dig at the Congress ruled state based on the video, which shows women being beaten by a group of men.

The video was also tweeted by the verified handle of BJP Uttar Pradesh with a caption targeting Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the in-charge of Uttar Pradesh Congress. The tweet has since been deleted. It was tweeted with the caption, "Priyanka Ji, public wants to know when will the daughter of Congress ruled state start her fight?" (Caption in Hindi: प्रियंका जी जनता जानना चाहती है कि... ...कांग्रेस शासित राज्य की लड़की कब लड़ सकेगी?)

The video has also been edited to include a text stating that it is an incident of Rajasthan. "The incident happened in Congress ruled Rajasthan. That's why Priyanka Gandhi is not visible." (Text in Hindi: "ऐ घटना कंग्रोस शासित राजस्थान की हौ। इसलिय प्रियंका जी की दिखाई नहीं दीती है")
