Fact-Check: Congress spokesperson shares image from Telangana claiming to be from Priyanka Gandhi’s Lucknow roadshow

Priyanka Chaturvedi claimed that an old image from Telangana was from Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's roadshow in Lucknow on 11th February 2019

Priyanka Gandhi held her first roadshow today after she officially entered the political scene a short while ago. There was considerable excitement within the Congress and ‘pliant media’ camp as the sister of the Congress President made her foray into politics.

National spokesperson of the Congress party, Priyanka Chaturvedi, tweeted images from today’s roadshow in Lucknow with the caption “This is quite a welcome, Lucknow!” She has since then deleted the tweet.

The second image Chaturvedi had included in the tweet, which she had claimed was from the Lucknow roadshow, was actually a political rally in Gajwel, Telangana.

The picture appears to be from December 2018 and was posted by the handle @Kkdtalkies on the social media platform.

Many people on social media have noticed the fake news spread by the Congress spokesperson.

The Congress party has been working overtime to project the arrival of Priyanka Gandhi as the second coming of Indira Gandhi. In their desperation, it appears they are tweeting images without bothering to care where it came from.
