A photoshopped image of Rahul Gandhi purports to show him looking at a picture of a woman in a bikini on his cellphone. The original image from November 2016 is of the Congress president counting demonetized one thousand rupee notes.
The image was shared on social media including a Facebook page called Yogi Sarkar . The fake image tweeted by the page on July 30, 2018 got over 11,000 shares at the time of writing this story.
A Reverse Image Search of the photo shows the original photo on Getty Images’ website.
The description of the photograph states, “Indian National Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi carries old denomination 1000 rupee notes at a bank as he arrives to exchange them in New Delhi on November 11, 2016.”
