No! LK Advani didn't claim that he voted for Congress; here's the fact check

A post is going viral on social media claiming that veteran BJP leader LK Advani voted for Congress in Lok Sabha 2019 elections.

For the first time in my 70+ years of voting life, I’ve voted for the Indian National Congress party. For this, I owe Modi and Amit Shah a big thank you, more than I owe it to Rahul Gandhi.”

~ Lal Krishna Advani
Ahmedabad
April 23, 2019” – the post quotes him as saying.

FACT CHECK

When NewsMobile team fact-checked this post, we found that it is fake.

When we looked for the statement on Google, we noticed that  Advani’s clothes in 2019 voting pictures were different than that of the viral picture.

Also, after casting his vote he said ” Jeet hamari hogi”. In the video, at 1:30 he gives the statement.

Also, when we reverse searched the picture in the post, we found out that it is an old image. On Yandex, we found an article by News18, dated back to 2009, and the same image is used.

This proves that the post is fake and should not be shared further.
