A video of BJP leader Hardik Patel is viral on social media where some people can be seen expressing their displeasure over the former Patidar community leader. In the video, people can be heard saying in Gujarati, “Ask whoever you may. It will unravel with time…the case you are referring to. Watch Shehla Rashid’s interview on the Russian TV channel RT…not everything is laid out clearly in the case. You might be able to defeat an individual or a party, but you don’t have to forge an alliance with such people for that, right? Not everything is part of an FIR. What is of importance is your speech. You might have the entire world standing behind you boss, but it is out of the question to seek an alliance with others…”

Twitter user Shubham, tweeting the video, wrote, it was the public that drove away the BJP leader Hardik Patel because people of Gujarat were disgruntled with the party.

Hardik Patel was in the Congress Party in 2019. He joined the BJP in June 2022 before the Gujarat assembly elections. Currently, this video is being shared in light of the upcoming assembly elections in the state. User Manu Azad also tweeted the video with a similar message.

Several other users have posted this video with similar claims.

Fact-check

To verify the claims in the video, Alt News conducted related keyword searches on Youtube, which led us to a report on March 26, 2019, published in Republic World. The report mentioned that some people had objected to Hardik Patel joining the Congress in Ahmedabad.

Upon further investigation, we came across a report published by Desh Gujarat. The report mentioned that Congress leaders Hardik Patel and Alpesh Thakor were at the Prahladnagar Garden in Ahmedabad, for an interview with TV9 Gujurati. At that moment, several people out on their morning walk approached him with questions.

Gujarati channel VTV News had also reported the incident.

This shows that the video of people expressing their disapproval of Hardik Patel is at least three-year old, when he was a Congress leader. The old video is being shared in light of the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections with the false claim that Hardik is unpopular with people now.
