Jaipur : Political parties are gearing up for the elections scheduled in the five states – Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram and Telangana. Election Commission has announced the dates and the parties are doing two type of campaigns – on social media and on field – to lure the voters.

A social media post claims that Rahul Gandhi broke Indira Gandhi's record with over 2.5 million people attending his address, 0.5 million more than his grandmother. Let's find out if the claims made are real of just a fake one to attract votes.
