Fact Check: Did Rahul Gandhi Say If He Becomes PM, He Will Reduce Inflation in Two Months, Or Leave India? Here’s the Truth

A video of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi doing the rounds on social media, claiming that Gandhi said if he is made the Prime Minister, he will reduce the price of everything within two months, otherwise, he will leave India.

The video is shared with a caption: राहुल गांधी का बड़ा ऐलान, मुझे प्रधानमंत्री बना दो। मैं 2 महीने के भीतर हर चीज की कीमत कम कर दूंगा, नहीं तो मैं भारत छोड़ दूंगा। (Rahul Gandhi’s big announcement, make me Prime Minister. I will reduce the price of everything within 2 months, otherwise, I will leave India.)

Here’s the link to the above post.


NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be false.

We found the video on the YouTube channel of ANI and Navbharat Times, uploaded on September 4, 2022, showing Rahul Gandhi addressing ‘Mehangai Par Halla Bol’ rally at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi.

We also found the original video of the speech on the official YouTube channel of the Indian National Congress dated September 4, 2022, with a title:Shri Rahul Gandhi addresses the ‘Mehengai Par Halla Bol’ rally at the Ramlila Maidan, New Delhi.”

In the video, he has criticised PM Modi and BJP for inflation and compared the price of some commodities during UPA and NDA reigns. Nowhere in the video, he has said that if he becomes PM he will reduce inflation within two months or leave the country.

Hence, it is clear that the video is shared with a false claim.
