We started our investigation by carefully observing the video where we could see OpIndia’s logo on the top left corner.

Keeping this in mind, we ran a relevant keyword search on YouTube that led us to the same video published by OpIndia Hindi on 14 July 2021. According to the headline of the video states that the speaker of the video is Nitin Gupta who is speaking on Forced Conversions of girls, cities and temples. 

Upon searching about Nitin Gupta, we found that he is a comedian who is the founder of the Humor Beings. Below you can see a comparison between Nitin Gupta’s image and Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma.

Next, Fact Crescendo contacted comedian Nitin Gupta who confirmed to us that the video is from one of his interviews. This video has no relation with Assam’s Chief Minister.
