Spokesman found in its investigation that Ashok Gehlot's statement is distorted

Viral Video News: RSFC (Team Mohali) - A Recent surge in a viral video clip circulating on social media alleges Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's support for Amritpal Singh's purported demand for Khalistan. The video snippet shows Gehlot stating, "Amritpal Singh is saying that if they can talk about Hindu Rashtra, why should I not talk about Khalistan." However, a thorough investigation by Spokesman reveals a distortion of Gehlot's statement.

In a meticulous fact-check, it was discovered that the video is incomplete and taken out of context. The original statement made by Ashok Gehlot during a conversation with journalists in Bharatpur on March 31, 2023, was not in support of Khalistan but rather a critique of such divisive narratives.

Gehlot addressed a question by stating, "Amritpal Singh is saying that if they can talk about Hindu Rashtra, why shouldn't I talk about Khalistan? How right he has said, it is a very dangerous thing for the country." However, the Chief Minister continued by emphasizing the potential harm of such discussions, stating, "Until today, for the first time in history, someone has said that if someone talks about Hindu Rashtra, why don't he? Tomorrow people will start talking about southern states. Such a voice was picked up in the south 40-50 years ago. The new generation does not know about this. We should worry about the future of the country."

Reports from reputable sources like 'Dainik Bhaskar' and ETV Bharat corroborate that Gehlot did not endorse Amritpal's Khalistan demand but instead expressed concern about the divisive nature of such rhetoric.

This video has surfaced previously with similar claims, prompting a previous investigation by Spokesman in April. The conclusion remains consistent – Ashok Gehlot did not make any statement in support of Khalistan.
