Fact Check: Video Of Congress MP Deependra Singh Hooda’s Rally Shared As People Welcoming Rahul Gandhi


A video is being shared on social media, in which flowers are being showered with a bulldozer on a person riding a camel amidst the crowd. The post claims that it shows people welcoming Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. 

The post read, “आजाद भारत मे ऐसा जोशीला स्वागत शायद ही किसी नेता का हुवा होगा जैसा राहुल गांधी का हो रहा है (English translation: In independent India, hardly any leader would have received such an enthusiastic welcome as Rahul Gandhi is getting.)

Here’s the link to the above post


NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be misleading. 

We extracted the keyframes of the video and put them through Reverse Image Search. The search led us to the same video that was uploaded on Facebook on January 7 with the caption stating that the video is of a rally of Congress MP Deependra Singh Hooda in Baroda. 

Taking a cue from this, we ran a keyword search and found the video on YouTube taken from a different angle. The title of the video mentioned that the video shows Deepender Hooda’s welcome in Baroda during the Jan Akrosh Rally.

Thus, from the above fact check, it is clear that the video is being shared with a misleading claim.
