No, this is not Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi being baptized

Written by Sahban

After Congress made Charanjit Singh Channi as Chief Minister of Punjab, a video of a man being Baptized is shared as Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi being baptized.

A Twitter user Dr.RichaRajpoot shared the video with a caption that reads,पंजाब का मुख्यमंत्री चरणजीत सिंह चन्नी है ?? देखो” which translates to, “The Chief Minister of Punjab is Charanjit Singh Channi. See“. Archived version of the tweet can be found here.

FactO check:

In the viral video, we found the priest can be heard saying “I baptise Simranjit Singh as samuel”. This itself clears that the man in the video is not Charanjit Singh.

 

Conclusion:

Video of a man named Simranjit Singh is falsely shared as Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi. The above claims are false and misleading.
