Congress has launched a campaign against inflation and unemployment. It organized a nationwide demonstration on 4 September 2022 under the name “Mehengai par Hallabol “. Congress held a big rally against inflation at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi. Veteran Congress leaders participated in this rally.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi addressed this rally against inflation. At the same time, an 8 -second video of Rahul Gandhi’s speech is going viral on social media. In this video, Rahul Gandhi can be heard saying the measurement of flour in litres.
Sharing this video, Rohit Chahal, general secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha wrote- “Pappu #RahulGandhi does not even know whether the flour comes in kilo or litre.”
At the same time, many other users have also shared this 8 -second video making fun of Rahul Gandhi.
To fact-check the viral video, we searched the original video of Rahul Gandhi’s speech on YouTube. We found Rahul Gandhi’s video on the YouTube channel of ANI News.
Rahul Gandhi can be heard from 9:20 minutes to 10:10 minutes in this 26:55-minute video of Rahul Gandhi. In his speech, Rahul Gandhi tells the measurement of petrol, diesel, mustard oil, and milk in litre. In the meantime, he also tells the flour in a litre, but the very next moment he immediately told the measurement of flour as KG i.e. kg.
It is clear from our fact check that Rahul Gandhi immediately corrected the measurement of flour from litre to kilo. Hence, the claim being made by social media users is misleading.
Claim- Rahul Gandhi told the measurement of flour in litre
Claimant- Social media users
