Claim

Leader of the opposition in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly and TDP president Chandrababu Naidu says Andhra Pradesh CM and YSR Congress president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will “100%” come back to power.

Andhra Pradesh held simultaneous single-phase elections to its 175-member Assembly and 25 Lok Sabha seats on May 13.

The archived version of the tweet can be seen here.

Fact

Newschecker noticed that the “reporter’s” question seemed to be overlaid onto the viral video, considering the difference in volume, clarity and background noise, raising our doubts on whether it was edited.

We then ran a relevant keyword search, which led us to this ANI tweet, dated May 13, 2024, sharing the same video. We can clearly hear Naidu replying 100% to the reporter’s question on whether TDP would come back to power in the state, confirming that the viral video was altered.
