Video Of Scindia's 'Vote for Congress' Faux Pas Is Not From UP

BOOM found that the video is from 2020 and shows a BJP's campaign for the November 3 byelections in Madhya Pradesh.

An old video of BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia is doing rounds on social media platforms with a claim that Scindia can be seen seeking votes for the Congress during a rally in Uttar Pradesh.

The video is being shared in the backdrop of the ongoing Uttar Pradesh assembly election 2022.

In the 14-second-long video, Scindia can be heard saying, "Close your fists and assure us that on date 3, the hand button will be pressed and Cong (corrects himself)… the lotus button will be pressed."

The Hindi caption with the video translates to, "Old memories have been stirred in Uttar Pradesh. Jai ho Scindia."
