A post is being shared on social media claiming that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will file her nomination from Banaras (Varanasi) on April 29, 2019.
“29 अप्रैल 2019 को श्रीमती प्रियंका वाड्रा गांधी जी बनारस से नामांकन करेंगी ।।जय कांग्रेस ।।” text with the picture of Priyanka Gandhi read.
The NewsMobile team found out that this post is Fake.
On April 25, 2019, Congress announced Ajay Rai as their candidate from Varanasi constituency who will be contesting against PM Narendra Modi.

On 29 April, 2019, Ajai rai filed his nomination from Varanasi.
This proves that the viral news of Priyanka Gandhi filing her nomination from Varanasi is false and should not be shared.
