The Bharat Jodo Yatra a mass movement started by the Indian National Congress is in its 13th week now, and it has entered Madhya Pradesh.

Against the backdrop, a viral video showing a huge crowd gathered on the streets and marching alongside Rahul Gandhi, is doing the rounds on social media. Users have shared the video, claiming it to be from the Indore leg of Bharat Jodo Yatra.  

A Facebook user posted the viral video with a caption: आज इंदौर में भारत जोड़ो यात्रा में उमड़ा जनसैलाब. देखकर राहुल गांधी पर टिप्पणी करने वालों के मुगालते दूर हो जाएंगे।। #BharatJodoYatra Rahul Gandhi (English translation: Today, a huge crowd gathered in Indore for the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video, and found it to be misleading.

Running keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we traced a tweet, dated October 22, 2022, by DK Shivakumar president of the Karanataka Congress. 

The keyframes of the video in the tweet match with the viral video and the description states that the clip is from Karnataka. 

The keyframes of the video in another tweet from Randeep Singh Surjewala Congress MP in Rajya Sabha also match with the viral video, informing that the visuals are from Raichur in Karnataka. 

The YouTube channel of the Congress party also carries a live stream video, dated October 22, 2022, with a title: LIVE: #BharatJodoYatra resumes from Raichur district

Various elements of the keyframes from 31:46 onwards match the viral clip, and the description corroborates the claims made by Congress leaders above. The video, indeed, is from Raichur in Karnataka, and not from Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral video is misleading.
