News Claim: A journalist. Sakshi Joshi accused PM Modi. She alleged that the PM did not talk to a player who brought a medal from the Olympics. The reasoning behind the allegation – That player had supported the Kisan movement.

Viral message on WhatsApp today & other Social Media: Tweets shared by many on social media pointing to the fact that PM Narendra Modi did not congratulate Bajrang Punia. Punia once wrote on twitter, “किसान देश की रीड की हड्डी है।किसानो को मत रोकिये।देश के अन्नदाता को अपनी बात रखने का संवैधानिक अधिकार है।बल प्रयोग से कभी किसी की आवाज़ को नही दबाया जा सकता।अपनी पीढ़ियों के भविष्य को बचाने सड़क पर उतरे किसानो की बात सुने सरकार!!

जय किसान Folded hands #IStandWithFarmers”   

Did he not speak to @BajrangPunia   yet because of his stand on Farmer’s protest?



News Verification: The information shared on social media is not true.

Sakshi wrote on social media – Has he not spoken to Bajrang Poonia (without naming PM Modi) yet because Poonia had expressed his views on the farmers' movement?

ANI does a tweet around 5 pm on 7th August, “PM Narendra Modi spoke to wrestler Bajrang Punia and congratulated him on winning the Bronze medal. He lauded Bajrang for his determination and hard work that has led to this accomplishment”.


News verdict: False, PM indeed congratulated all the medal winners of the Tokyo Olympics
