Fact Check

NewsMeter performed a reverse image search of the photo and found an identical photo but there was no plate of beef. The photo was published by Kaumudi Online in an article published on 17 September and titled "Rahul enjoys tea time at small stall in between 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', clicks photo with shopkeeper, family." It said that Rahul Gandhi suddenly walked to a stall in Vallikkeezhu for a tea break in the morning. He had black tea with parotta and took photographs with the family of the stall owner, it said.


We also found the same photo in a Malayalam article published by Manorama on 17 September. There was no beef in this photo also. The article reported that Harikumar and his wife were shocked that Rahul Gandhi came to their shop to have black tea. Rahul was accompanied by Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Bagel, KPCC working president Kodikunvil Suresh MP, and other Congress leaders.


To bring more clarity, we have highlighted the missing beef plate in the original photo.


Hence, the claim that Rahul Gandhi ate beef during Bharat Jodo Yatra is false.
