Amidst the upcoming Assam state assembly election PM Modi visited Bokakhat in Assam on 21st March 2021. A small clip from the speech given by him in Assam is circulating on social media claiming PM Modi spoke the truth in the speech given by him at the rally. In the video we can hear PM Modi saying “Show dreams to the poor, lie to them, make them fight among themselves and rule”
The 10 seconds clip was shared by Rohan Gupta, chairman, social media department, Indian National Congress, with the caption “No Comments”.
We started our investigation by running a keyword search on Youtube to find the recent speech given by PM Modi in Bokakhat in Assam on 21st March 2021. We found that soon after he says, ‘show dreams to the poor, lie to them, make them fight amongst each other and rule’ he adds, ‘this has always been Congress’s formula to stay in power’. The second part has been cropped out to leave out the context in which the statement was made.
One can hear the original statement from 35:20 to 35:30 seconds.
Below you can see the comparison video of the clipped video which is being shared out of context and the original version of the video.
