A video is being shared on social media with the claim that "Pakistan Zindabad" slogans were raised during a Congress event at Rajsamand. A Facebook user Yash Mancharkar shared the video in the group Bhajapa Mission 2019 with a caption "This is Congress and their characters. Pakistan Zindabad slogans were raised at Rajsamand. At least now open your eyes now Hindus (or at least now get reformed Hindus)". (translated).

The video was also shared on Twitter by a verified Twitter handle.
The video is being widely circulated on Facebook. You can see such posts here.
We found a tweet by the national Social Media Conveyor of Congress Zoheb Shaikh who wrote: "BJP supporters in Rajasthan are trying to create communal tension. They are trying to create enmity during election time, why fake video is being circulated on social media. We request Rajasthan police to take action against the maker of the video".
One of the users in the comment section pointed out that they were raising Bhati Saaheb Zindabaad and not Pakistan Zindabad.
We searched for the list of Congress party candidates in Rajasthan and found that Narayan Singh Bhati is the Congress candidate from Assembly seat No. 175, Rajsamand. You can view the full list here.
After keeping these things in mind we carefully listened to the slogans in the video and found that workers were actually shouting "Bhati Saheb Zindabad". Phonetically, it may sound very similar to the slogan "Pakistan Zindabad", especially if someone is previously told so.
The Congress workers in the video were not shouting "Pakistan Zindabad". They were shouting in support of the local Congress candidate Narayan Singh Bhati by raising the slogan "Bhati Saheb Zindabad" which may sound similar to Pakistan Zindabad.
