A video is going viral on various platforms of social media where a man dressed in saffron can be seen listening to the hymn ‘Mathura bhi saja denge’ in a car. This man can be seen clapping on the lyrics of the hymn. The video has been made from the back seat of the vehicle. Some users on social media are sharing this video as that of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Vishvas News fact-checked the viral post and found the claim to be fake. This video had gone viral once earlier too. This video has been fact-checked by the official Twitter handle of the UP government, Info Uttar Pradesh Fact Check, itself.


Facebook user Laddu Yadav (archive link) uploaded a 22-second video on March 19, claiming, “Seeing Maharaj ji’s enthusiasm as soon as the song ‘Mathura bhi saja denge’ is played, it seems that even a decision will be made on it too.”

Taking the investigation further, Vishvas News contacted the chief minister’s Media Advisor Mrityunjay Kumar and shared the viral video with him. Giving information to Vishvas News, he said it wasn’t UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in the viral video.

In the last phase of the investigation, social scanning of Facebook user Laddu Yadav was done. It was learned that the user has 91 thousand followers. This user from Telangana belongs to a political party.
