A video has been making rounds on the internet in which Congress President Rahul Gandhi can be seen addressing a crowd.
The claim is being made that people from Amethi have come to visit Rahul Gandhi after his loss in Amethi.
The caption reads: “अमेठी के लोग राहुल गाँधी से मिलने दिल्ली पहुँचे,अमेठी में चुनाव हारने के बाद राहुल से मिलते ही लोग अपने आँखों के आंसू नहीं रोक पाये,”
(Translation- People of Amethi reach Delhi to meet Rahul Gandhi, after he lost the election in Amethi, people couldn’t stop tearing up)
When NewsMobile team fact-checked the above post, we found that the claim is FAKE.
On putting key screengrabs of the video through Reverse Image Search, we came across a tweet on Congress’ official handle.
The video was posted on November 2, 2017 when Rahul Gandhi was the vice president of INC. He had gone to meet the people affected by the NTPC power plant explosion that occurred on 1 November 2017 at a newly commissioned 500-megawatt unit of the Feroze Gandhi Unchahar coal-fired power plant.
