Your hatred for PM Modi so deep rooted @priyankagandhi that you actually giggle gleefully when little children shower him with filthy abuses just to score some brownie points from you?? Being a mother yourself, didn't you feel ashamed of your actions even for a minute?? #Shame pic.twitter.com/NqSuDyX0Yy

The video begins with man ( who’s not visible in the video) shouting “Chowkidaar…” to which children resonate in chorus “Chor hai”. It is a slogan used by Congress party accusing Modi government especially Prime Minister of irregularities Rafale deal.
The chorus is followed by a series of cuss words in the end of the clip. They can be heard saying,“Neem ka patta kadva hai, Modi s***a b****a hai.”
This is the clip tweeted by several prominent journalists and BJP leaders without verification including Union Minister Smriti Irani.

Smriti Irani is seen responding to same 11 seconds clip.
Uncouth to the core. Imagine the filthiest of abuses that a Prime Minister has to endure from people whose only claim to fame is a nose. Lutyens outrage anyone ???? https://t.co/T5sPyKtmbr

Military veteran Major Surendra Poonia tweeted same video with a comment saying,”Had PM Modi seen Madam Priyanka Gandhi making the kids abuse him, he would have, perhaps, said only this much – You would start hating your character if I choose to talk the way you do.”

While investigating the claim it is found that the video shared by many Twitter users including prominent personalities is found to be edited or cut down to 11 seconds from its original 28 seconds clip.
In this clip it was clear sign of shock by Vadra and immediately refraining them from making any such comments. She can be heard saying, “Yeh waala nahi, yeh waala nahi, acha nahi lagega, ache bache bano” which roughly translates to, “Not this one, this one won’t be good, be good kids.”
It was also brought to notice by National Convener of Congress party busting the rumors and tweeting the video with original length. He wrote on Twitter, “When kids in their excitement make distasteful remarks against PM Narendra Modi. @priyankagandhi ji discourages them against raising such slogans and says “Ache Bachhe Bano”! ”

AAP leader Alka Lamba went on to praise Ms. Vadra for her kind gesture towards the children in goodwill. Ms. Vadra and her family has been under constant fierce attack from Prime Minister Modi since the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections.
