Republic TV and Times Now shared a photograph of the Gandhi family with the claim that this “undated” picture shows Robert Vadra and Rahul Gandhi with the Chinese envoy.
As it turns out, a reverse-image search led to the photograph shared on the website of the Chinese Embassy on April 21, 2017.
Here, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra were attending a Chinese food festival hosted by the Gandhi family.
The food festival was attended by India’s Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, Sitaram Yechuri from CPIM, KC Tyagi from JDU and other leaders from BJP such as Tarun Vijay and Udit Raj.
Therefore, an image of a Chinese food festival which was attended by leaders from several parties was shared by Times Now and Republic to hint at a conspiracy.
