Claim
Massive support to Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Nashik.

Fact
Over one-year-old video of Bharat Jodo Yatra in Rajasthan’s Dausa.

A video showing an aerial view of a massive crowd flooding a street is being widely shared on social media platforms with users linking it to Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra which is currently in Maharashtra- a state governed by the Mahayuti alliance comprising the BJP, Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena, and the NCP- Ajit Pawar faction.

Multiple X and Facebook users shared the video claiming to show “Craze of Rahul Gandhi ji in Bharat jodo Nyay Yatra in Nashik.” Newschecker found the claim to be untrue. The video dates back to December 2022, and shows visuals from Bharat Jodo Yatra in Rajasthan’s Dausa.
