“PM Never Sold Tea” : Prahlad Modi’s Old Video Goes Viral After Jantar Mantar Protest

pm never sold tea says prahlad modi

Mumbai: The Jantar Mantar Protest was held in DelhiĀ by Prahlad Modi who is the brother of PM Narendra Modi. For the last two days, a video of Prahlad Modi is taking rounds on social media. The recently uploaded viral video shows him speaking about the prime minister not being a tea seller.

The video of his speech is currently going viral on the internet. In this video, he says, “Don’t call Prime Minister Narendra Modi a tea seller, rather call him a tea seller’s son. Because our father sold tea. He has brought up six of us (siblings) by selling tea on a small scale. You are making a big mistake by calling the Prime Minister a ‘chai wala‘ (tea seller).”

The video of Prahlad Modi is taking rounds on Twitter in August 2022 with multiple tweets and retweets of the same clips along with netizens mentioning their take upon it.

We took a dig at the viral video and found a similar video on YouTube on a channel named ‘Well Sunny’ who has uploaded it on August 4. In the video a text band is popping up which states, “Narendra Modi never sold tea,says his brother Prahlad Modi” , “Narendra Modi is a lier”.

HW News did the fact check of that viral video and we found that the video wasn’t from the ongoing Jantar mantra protest but from Prahlad Modi’s visit to Ulhasnagar in Maharashtra for a protest against GST on 30th July 2021. It was last year during his Ulhasnagar visit when he made the sensational claim that ‘PM Modi was never a tea seller’. After his statement a RTI report was released citing no record of PM selling tea on railways station.


The clip is taken from TV 9Ā  Digital which originally is from 2021 but is currently not available there .We have found the same video on Zee24 Taas which shows the original date.

The background in the video shows UlhasnagarĀ  written on it with the date 30th July. Prahlad Modi’s attire is exactly same with his 2021 Ulhasnagar visit which denotes that the video is not of the 2022 Jantar Mantar Dharna.


The Jantar Mantar Protest:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brother Prahlad Modi, who is also vice president ofĀ theĀ All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation,Ā protestedĀ at Delhi’s Jantar MantarĀ againstĀ variousĀ claims by the organisation. Ā PrahladĀ Modi,Ā along with several other membersĀ of the AIFPSDF,Ā gathered atĀ theĀ JantarĀ Mantar in Delhi,Ā holdingĀ upĀ banners andĀ shoutingĀ slogans. The All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation hasĀ demandedĀ compensation forĀ losses inĀ rice, wheat andĀ sugarĀ and forĀ Fair Price Shops supply of cookingĀ oil andĀ legumes.Ā They have alsoĀ called forĀ theĀ “WestĀ Bengal RationĀ Model”Ā of free distributionĀ toĀ be implementedĀ nationwide.

Secretary of the Federation Vishwambhar Basu read the statement of their 9 demands on this occasion. A statement of the federation’s demands will be given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Prahlad Modi also runs a ration shop. “What happened because my brother is the prime minister, should I die of hunger?”, he asked such a question.
