Sachin Pilot, former president of Rajasthan Congress, has embarked on a five-day ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’ starting on May 11. During this padayatra — Ajmer to Jaipur — Pilot and his supporters are raising concerns about various issues, including alleged scams and corruption that took place during the tenure of former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
Against this backdrop, a video showing a huge crowd of people holding the tricolour on the road is widely shared on social media linking it to Sachin Pilot’s ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’.
The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “हाथों में तिरंगा थामे भारत माता की जय के उदघोष के साथ #जनसंघर्ष_यात्रा का आगाज़… भ्रष्टाचार के विरुद्ध, #पायलट_जनसंघर्षयात्रा में एकजुट राजस्थान #SachinPilot” (English translation: Holding the tricolour in the hands, the #Jansangharsh_Yatra started with the announcement of Bharat Mata Ki Jai… against corruption, Rajasthan united in #Pilot_JanSangharshYatra #SachinPilot)
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be MISLEADING.
In response to the viral video, a person commented that the video is actually from the Bharat Jodo Yatra organised in Dausa district of Rajasthan.
Searching further, we found the same video uploaded on a Twitter handle, dated December 16, 2022, with a caption: “BHARAT JODO YATRA: #RAJASTHAN: 100 Days for Rahul Gandhi’s anticipated #BharatJodoYatra The Media is absent and mute to be a part of the Opposition.! Let this Sink in.” This clearly means that the video cannot be recent.
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi received full support for his Bharat Jodo Yatra in Dausa, Rajasthan. On December 16, 2022, the yatra completed 100 days, and a large number of people gathered for the padayatra from Meena High Court to Giriraj Dharan Temple.
यहां चल रहे हर शख्स की अपनी एक कहानी है, अपनी एक पहचान है, अपना आत्मसम्मान है। हम उसी पहचान और सम्मान की रक्षा के लिए मीलों चल रहे हैं और मीलों चलेंगे।
इसी लक्ष्य को लिए आज #BharatJodoYatra मीणा हाईकोर्ट से शुरू होकर गिरिराज धरण मंदिर तक जाएगी।

While it is true that a crowd of supporters has been seen during Sachin Pilot’s ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’, the viral video is actually from the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Dausa.
Thus, it is clear that an old video from Bharat Jodo Yatra is falsely shared as a crowd gathered for Sachin Pilot’s ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’.
