FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and we found that it was doctored and the part in which Mamata Banerjee is saying ‘Vote for BJP’ is trimmed out of the full speech.
An hour after BJP’s Bengal wing posted the video, TMC on it’s official Twitter handle clarified that the viral clip is incomplete.


“Cheats exposed. Desperate @BJP4Bengal tweets doctored @mamataofficial video. Why did you edit out next 2 words?,” TMC’s tweet read.
As per the tweet, Mamata Banerjee had said: “৬ই মে আসছে দিন, ভালো করে গণতন্ত্রে বিজেপি সরকারকে ভোট দিয়ে কবর দিন।”
(Translation: Vote and put the BJP government in the grave)
Here’s Mamata’s full video:
