post with a video of Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh cutting a cake is being shared on social media with the claim that Manmohan Singh is not even free to cut his own birthday cake. Let’s try to analyze the extent of authenticity in this post.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: Video of Rahul Gandhi cutting Manmohan Singh’s birthday cake.

Fact: The cake that was cut by Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh in the video was not on Manmohan Singh’s birthday, but on the occasion of Congress party’s foundation day. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE. 

When the screenshots of the video were searched on Google using reverse image technique, photos of Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh cutting a cake were found in a tweet by ‘ANI’ in December 2018. From that tweet, it is understood that Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh were cutting cake on the occasion of Congress party’s foundation day (December 28). An article published by ‘NDTV’ regarding this event can be found here.

To sum it up, the video of Congress party’s foundation day celebration is being shared as that of Rahul Gandhi cutting Manmohan Singh’s birthday cake.
