A video of Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is becoming fiercely viral on social media. In this 14-second video, Priyanka Gandhi can be heard saying, “The most important thing is that all our efforts will go towards providing employment and six hundred and eighty crores.” Social media users are making fun of Priyanka Gandhi for being called “six hundred and eighty crores”.
While sharing this video, a user wrote- “The explosion started from the first six hundred and eighty crore first rally. Priyanka Gandhi already did a blast, Rahul Gandhi’s speech is yet to come.”
At the same time, many other social media users are also sharing this video.
To fact-check the video going viral, the DFRAC team first converted the video into multiple frames. After that did reverse image search. We found a video uploaded on YouTube by The Tribune. This video has been titled- “Live: Priyanka Gandhi to launch Congress’ poll campaign ‘Parivartan Pratigya Rally’ in Himachal”.
In the 1:16:10 sec to 1:16:22 sec part of the video, Priyanka can be heard saying, “But most importantly, our entire emphasis will be on providing employment and six hundred and eighty crores… We will make a start-up fund of six hundred and eighty crores.
