Our Investigation

After doing reverse research of keyframes on Google, we found a video on YouTube uploaded on 5 March 2017 by a YouTube channel named LIFTF 2017. In the video, people can be heard speaking Manipuri language in the background of the video. The video is titled "Congress Bribing Voters In Imphal, Manipur? VIDEO GOES VIRAL"

The audio of Rahul Gandhi's voice in the viral video is actually taken from a video in which Rahul addressed the Navsarjan Gujarat Mandate rally held in Gandhinagar, Gujrat in October 2017. This speech was uploaded on 23 October 2017 on Rahul Gandhi's YouTube channel. The audio of Rahul's voice in the viral video can be heard in this speech from 2 minutes 26 seconds.


The claim made with the viral video is misleading. The video is not of Delhi but of Manipur and is about 3 years old. The audio of Rahul Gandhi has also been added separately in the video.
