FACT CHECK

With a keyword search, we came across a video shared by the official Congress Twitter account on 4 October 2021.

It is a similar video of Priyanka Gandhi sweeping the floor. But the notable difference is that there was no rangoli present in the original video.

According to media reports, Priyanka Gandhi and others were detained early Monday morning en route to Lakhimpur Kheri where eight people, including four farmers, were killed in violent clashes on Sunday.

Priyanka Gandhi was then taken to a guest house in Sitapur, where she was seen sweeping the floor using a broom.

A similar video was also tweeted by journalists and news websites.

We made a comparison video below in which you can see the difference between the original video and the viral video.

In the viral video, the rangoli of Congress party logo has been digitally added to the original video and shared with misleading claims.
