On September 7, 2022, the Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir was launched under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi. Congress leaders and the public are all participating in it and they have reached the state of Kerala now.
A woman has taken a photo with Rahul Gandhi in Kerala and the photo is viral now claiming that she is Amulya Leona Noronha who raised slogans of Pakistan Zindabad during the protest against the Indian Citizenship Act.
What is the truth?
When searching the image, it was revealed that the girl who is in the photo with Rahul Gandhi is Miva Andreleo from Kerala. It is also known that she belongs to the Kerala student wing of the Congress.
Miva Andreleo has posted the video and photos about her participation in the yatra on her Instagram page. The photo, which is being circulated by the right-wing, is also on her Instagram page with the caption “Happiest Moment in my life. My own RaGa”.
Amulya Leona Noronha, a woman from Karnataka, mentioned by the right-wing, raised the ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogan during the February 2020 protest against the Indian Citizenship Act in Bengaluru and was arrested for the same. Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi was also present on the stage. She issued a statement after her arrest that says “All nations are one. I came to say ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Hindustan Zindabad’. But by then, they had bought the mic”, reported ‘shethepeople’ website on 12th June 2020.
In our search, it is revealed that the woman in the photo spread by the right-wing is not Amulya Leona Noronha, who participated in the protest against the Citizenship Act, but the Kerala student leader of the Congress, and that the claim is fake.
