In a hugely damaging moment to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s credibility, of whatever it is left, it’s now come to light that he posted a fake video on his twitter timeline today to rundown prime minister Narendra Modi.
Rahul Gandhi posted a video today, what he asserted were testimonials from people from Ladakh saying that China has occupied the Indian territory. His tweet reads:
Ladakhis say: China took our land.
PM says: Nobody took our land.
Obviously, someone is lying.
However, a closer look at the people featured in the video, done by an observant twitterati, showed that most of them are Congress leaders and workers and some, shockingly, even don’t belong to the Union Territory of Ladakh.
For instance, Sachin Mirupa is not only the general secretary of the National Students Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of the Congress party, but he is also from Himachal Pradesh, not Ladakh.
One Tundup Nubu Cheetha, claiming that media is misleading the public on LAC, is general secretary of District Youth Congress in Leh.
Dorjay Gyalston, who also appears in the video, is the working president of the Leh distict Youth Congress.
Namgyal Durbuk, another one such fake, has been quoted by several media house that Indian government is lying about the border situation. He was also interviewed by journalist Barkha Dutt where he has been introduced as a former councillor of the Congress party.
