An old video is circulated with a false narrative that polls are rigged during the 2021 West Bengal assembly elections.
However, we found that Hindustan Times Political editor Vinod Sharma earlier posted the same video on May 15, 2019. News Central also carried the news saying that it could not ascertain the exact location and suggested that it might be from rural Bengal.
Thus it is clear an old video has been revived to show that the 2021 elections in West Bengal are rigged. The video shared widely on social media is in no way related to the 2021 assembly elections in West Bengal.
