NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be FALSE.

Performing a Reverse Image Search of the viral video keyframes, the NM team spotted a YouTube video by REPUBLIC DUNlYA, dated May 6, 2024. This video contained the same footage, but the screen in front of the Congress leader was turned off.

The original video was also shared on Rahul Gandhi’s official Instagram account on April 17, 2024, with a caption: “Thinking of India, searching for India!” (translated from Hindi). The same video was also posted on his Facebook account.
