Explanation

An image of Rahul Gandhi with a nameplate in front of him that reads “Rahul Rajiv Feroz, Gold from Potato Expert, Wayanad, Kerala” is shared on social media.

What is the truth?

When searching the viral image with Google Lens it is found that the nameplate in the image is photoshopped.

This video is found carrying the unedited version of the viral image where the nameplate is seen empty.

Pawan Khera, Congress Leader shared the unedited version of the viral image on his Twitter page on 1, March 2023 mentioning it as ‘Learning To Listen In The 21st Century’ – the topic of Mr @RahulGandhi’s lecture is the key takeaway of the #BharatJodoYatra. He also mentioned that Rahul Gandhi has consistently given people a safe space to voice their concerns and aspirations and has set the narrative for the future of politics.
