Fact Check: Cong President Kharge’s Comment About Mahatma Gandhi Shared With False Claim


A post claiming that Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge recently said that ousting BJP from power in 2024 would be a true tribute to Sonia Gandhi is doing the rounds on social media. Many users have mocked Kharge for his comment since Sonia Gandhi is still alive. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post with a caption:
*सोनिया गाँधी को श्रद्धांजलि देने के नाम पर देश का बेड़ा गर्क कर दोगे रामू काका?*
*सोनिया गाँधी को श्रद्धांजलि कुछ मुठ्ठी भर कांग्रेसी देना चाहते होंगे लेकिन राष्ट्रवादी वोटर कभी नहीं।*
(English translation: * Ramu uncle, will you destroy the country in the name of paying tribute to Sonia Gandhi? *
*Some handful of Congressmen may want to pay tribute to Sonia Gandhi but never nationalist voters. *)

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

Going through the post carefully, our team noticed @boltaindustan written at the bottom of the post. Searching further, we identified a tweet, dated September 17, 2023. The picture and the quote on the tweet match with the viral post except the name of Sonia Gandhi. Here we can see that Kharge mentioned Mahatma Gandhi in his comment.

Conducting a Google Keyword Search to know more about Kharge’s comment, our team traced an article from ABP news, titled: CWC Meet: मल्लिकार्जुन खरगे बोले, ‘2024 में बीजेपी को सत्ता से बाहर करना महात्मा गांधी को होगी सबसे उचित श्रद्धांजलि’ (English translation: CWC Meet: Mallikarjun Kharge said: “The most appropriate tribute to Mahatma Gandhi would be to oust BJP from power in 2024”). Kharge mentioned Mahatma Gandhi in his comment during the second day of the Central Working Committee meeting of Congress on September 17, 2023.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge said that ousting BJP from power in 2024 would be a tribute to Sonia Gandhi, is false.
