It seems controversies refuse to spare Rahul Gandhi even during a pilgrimage. The Congress president, who is on a 20-day trip to Kailash Mansarovar, has been sharing pictures and videos since the beginning of his journey. However, his rivals, especially the ruling BJP, thinks some of those pictures are either fake or photoshopped.
Union minister Giriraj Singh tweeted one of those pictures in which Rahul was seen standing with a fellow traveller against the backdrop of a snow-clad mountain. Singh alleged that the picture was photoshopped as the shadow of the stick held by Rahul was missing.
Congress party was quick to react and shared a screengrab of his Fitbit on Twitter. It shows Rahul covered a distance of 34.31 km, walked 46,433 steps and burned 4,466 calories in a day.
Rahul is travelling with a group of 20 pilgrims from Gujarat and two Special Protection Group commandos.
Earlier, Priti Gandhi, Mahila Morcha's social media in-charge, had raised questions over the authenticity of a few photos of Lake Rakshastal, which Rahul had shared on Twitter.
“Are you downloading pics from the internet and tweeting? Are you really at Mansarovar or some place else?,” she asked while pointing out at the similarities between the pictures Rahul shared and those available on Google.
