Fact Check:

To know the truth of the claim going viral, our team did a fact check. On reverse-searching some of the frames of the video, we found that the video is an edited excerpt of Rahul Gandhi’s speech at a rally in 2011. In this video he was alleging corruption in a scheme for pregnant women of UP.

He had alleged corruption in the implementation of the Janani Suraksha Yojana in Uttar Pradesh, which comes under the National Rural Health Mission. Under this mission, an incentive amount of Rs 1400 is given to pregnant women to promote institutional delivery among poor pregnant women.

Watch the video from 5.15 to 6.04 minutes.
