MP Kiren RijIju used a Brazilian video praising efforts of our PM.

Spread the truth:

Minister of State in the Ministry of Home Affairs , Mr. Kiren Rijiju tweeted a video of a genius kid juggling a football, practicing in home along with which he wrote

“Our PM Modi ji has given lot’s of emphasis on sports particularly football. Our Indian team is performing much better now & younger generations are showing more interest. I’m very hopeful.”

He deleted his tweet now but you can click on the image below

His tweet was retweeted 1773 times before deletion.

So basically he was pointing out and appreciating PM Modi Ji’s effort in sports, he used a video without mentioning it’s location, date or origin which may let people understand it’s an Indian boy. The video had nothing to do with India, which is quite misleading. If you caneck replies to his tweet, tweeples understood the video has an Indian Kid.


The video was posted on Instagram from the Kid’s account itself on 10th March 2018. Marco Antonio, the kid is 7 years old and is quite popular in Brazil, he has a YouTube account too.


A post shared by Marco Antonio 04/02/2011 🇧🇷 (@marcoantonionf11) on

The Sun, A UK Newspaper featured him last year

It says –

CHECK out the incredible skills of six-year-old Brazilian Marco Antonio… already a target for European giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Youngster Antonio has already caught the eye of social media after his dad shared clips of their phenomenal daily training sessions.

The Brazilian ace has already been dubbed the “new Neymar” by many in the South American country thanks to the videos.

Tiny Samba starlet Antonio has now caught the eye of La Liga’s two biggest clubs – who famously trawl through South America to find the continent’s top talents.

As well as Neymar, who swapped Santos for Barca in 2013, stars including Lionel Messi have moved from South America to Spain to become the best in the world.

In one of Antonio’s clips, he is seen playing keepy-uppy with his dad, showing the kind of skill most adults can only dream of.
