No, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Did Not Say Yoga In Parks Should Be Stopped

BOOM found that the viral quote is fake, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra did not make such a statement.

A fake graphic falsely claims Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that if Namaz on roads is stopped then yoga in parks should also be end. The fabricated graphic falsely attributed quote to Vadra and gives it a communal twist.

BOOM ran searches for credible news reports and did not find any such statement made by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. This political misinformation is being shared in the backdrop of the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly polls next year.

The quote on the graphic is in Hindi and translates to, "If there is no Namaz on roads, then there will be no Yoga in parks"
