What is the truth?
When we watch the video, it is found that the people coming out stumbles in the same place. It is revealed when we watch the video closely that there is a step in the place which made people stumble while walking without noticing it.
With further searching, a Facebook post of Vivek Oachira mentioning about a hotel which Rahul Gandhi visited is found.
When google searched the name of the restaurant ‘Malabar Hotel’, it is found that the picture of the hotel and the video resembles. So they are coming out of a restaurant and not from a bar as the viral post claims.
Bharat Jodo Yatra began on September 7 and is planned for 150 days. It has just been 20 days but can find numerous fake news related to Yatra doing rounds on social media.
As the viral post claims, the Bharat Jodo Yatris are not coming out of a bar but from a restaurant. And they didn’t stumble as they were drunk, but they stumbled as there is a step in their way at the entrance of the hotel.
