A picture is being shared on social media showing a few Congress workers feeding cake to a poster of the former adult film star, Mia Khalifa.
“राहुल जी के कांग्रेसी ! फिर कहते हैं EVM हैक हो गई,” the Facebook post read.
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found that the picture is morphed.
We put the picture through Reverse Image Search and found the original picture on Getty Images.
In the original picture, clicked in 2007, the Congress workers are seen feeding cake to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
The description of the picture read: New Delhi, INDIA: Indian Youth Congress supporters cut a huge birthday cake during celebrations for the 37th birthday of Rahul Gandhi, leader of the youth wing of the Congress Party, in front of Congress Party President Sonia Gandhi’s residence in New Delhi, 19 June 2007. Indian Youth Congress supporters organised the birthday celebrations for Rahul Gandhi, Congress Party member of parliament (MP) and son of the Congress-led UPA government chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

We also compared both the pictures and found that Mia Khalifa’s picture was superimposed on the poster of Rahul Gandhi.
Hence, from the above fact check, it is clear that the picture in circulation is morphed.
