What is Rahul Gandhi saying in this video?
Rahul Gandhi in the video said that, “If a decision of Rs 100 is taken from the budget, then how much do the tribals take? How much? 0.01 means tribal officers take a decision of Rs 10 out of Rs 100″.
During the investigation of the viral video, DFRAC team found the video of the Ambikapur Rally uploaded on Rahul Gandhi’s official channel on YouTube. In which the viral statement can be heard at the timestamp of 18:40 to 19:12 with Gandhi saying “If a decision of Rs 100 is taken from the budget, then how much do the tribals take? How much? 0.01 means tribal officers decide Rs 10 out of Rs 100 . No, they take the decision of 10 paise. Sorry”.
