Fact Check | Did Yogi Adityanath Ordered Re-Examination After UP Police Paper Leak; Here Is The Truth

Fact Check: Amid claims of a paper leak for the UP Police Constable exam, a video of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is circulating on social media, suggesting that the government has ordered a re-conduct of the UP Police exam. The video has sparked speculation about a significant decision by the Yogi government.

Fact Check – Exam Details and Claims

The UP government conducted examinations for police recruitment under ‘Mission Employment’ on February 17 and 18, aiming to fill 60,244 constable positions. Social media posts alleged that the paper for the February 17 exam had been leaked, leading to disputes between candidates and the administration. Some claimed that Yogi Adityanath had ordered the cancellation of the entire paper and the arrest of those responsible

Fact-checking the Claim

To verify the claim, an investigation was conducted. The viral video was traced back to a YouTube upload on November 28, 2021, on the ‘Aaj Tak’ channel. The video captures Yogi Adityanath’s statement in Deoria, UP, regarding the leak of UP Teacher Eligibility Test (UPTET) papers. In the video, Yogi Adityanath speaks about canceling the leaked paper, arresting the culprits under the Gangster Act, and conducting a transparent re-examination within a month. Importantly, this incident relates to the UPTET exam in November 2021, not the recent UP Police exam.

Clarification on the Video Content

Yogi Adityanath’s statement in the viral video pertains to the UPTET paper leak, not the UP Police exam. He addresses the cancellation of the TET paper, arrest of the gang involved in the leak, and the decision to conduct a fair re-examination for UPTET candidates.

In summary, the viral video circulating with claims of Yogi Adityanath ordering a re-conduct of the UP Police exam is misleading. The video is from November 2021, related to the UPTET paper leak incident. The two-year-old footage has been falsely linked to the recent controversy surrounding the UP Police Constable exam.
