0 128

Days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was slapped, a video has surfaced on the internet in which claims that Anna Hazare is reacting to the incident and making fun of it.
Anna can be heard saying, “he was slapped? Only one slap?”

The caption of the video read: केजरीवाल के थप्पड़ कांड पर #अन्ना साब की प्रतिक्रिया

When NewsMobile fact-checked the above video, we found that though the video is real, it is an old video and Anna Hazare didn’t say it in the context of the recent attack on Kejriwal.
On putting the frames of the video through Reverse Image Search, we found the original video on the verified YouTbe channel of IndiaTV. 

The video was published on November 24th, 2011, when Sharad Pawar was slapped.
Hence, this proves that the claim attached in the above post is false.
