Here’s what Rahul Gandhi did when a photographer took a really nasty tumble on a couple of steps in Bhubaneshwar. A Congress member then used the incident to take a potshot at PM Modi — but used a misleading video.
Congress boss one of the quickest to react as photographer falls
Helps man up; incident took place at Bhubaneswar airport
Congress member then tweets 2013 video with misleading caption to take potshot at PM
It took Rahul Gandhi all of three seconds to hurry down a couple of steps to reach the fallen photographer and extend a hand of succour.
The man had taken a painful tumble down those same steps — he landed on his back, then on his head and rolled over. The next thing he knew: he was being helped to his feet by the Congress president.
Where did this happen, you ask? At the Bhubaneswar airport.
Take a look.
One Congress member, Hasiba, couldn’t resist using the moment to take a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Problem: She used a misleading video.
“Look at how Congress president Rahul Gandhi ran to pick up the photographer who fell,” she wrote in a tweet.
“Now compare this with the time a cop passed out while Modi was giving a speech. He turned, saw, pretended like nothing happened and continued with his speech,” she said.
She then tweeted this video, which had the Hindi caption: “It doesn’t matter if someone is dying, Modiji will continue giving his speech.”
