Fake: Cong puts out digitally altered clip claiming people changed Kamal Nath in presence of Chouhan
New Delhi, Sep 21: The Madhya Pradesh Congress has put out video clip to claim that the public cheered for former Congress CM, Kamal Nath in the presence of current CM, Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The MP Congress tweeted, 'the MP by poll results have been declared. In Mandsaur's Suwasra, when CM Chouhan asked people at a rally who they prefer more as the state's CM, they all chanted, Kamal Nath. The people in MP are with Kamal Nath', read the tweet.

मंदसौर के सुवासरा पहुँचे मुख्यमंत्री शिवराज सिंह चौहान ने जनता से पूछा कि मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में शिवराज चौहान अच्छा या कमलनाथ, जनता ने एक स्वर में कहा कमलनाथ।

उनका नाम है कमलनाथ। pic.twitter.com/aFWqjvgFEi
This is however a false claim. The audio is in fact digitally altered.
Chouhan had on Twitter posted the same video on September 20, 2020. The clip which is around 1 hour long features Chouhan. Towards the end of the video, the crowd chants Shivraj and not Kamala Nath.

The BJP Madhya Pradesh also took to Twitter to call out the Congress. It captioned the tweet, " so the IPL is not the only one using fake crowd noises."

Just for your reference @INCMP, We know you are shameless enough not to delete the tweet & apologise. Like you never apologised to the farmers, the youth, the women, the elderly or to Mahatma Gandhi for defying his last wish, the BJP MP also said in another tweet.
