The Congress President was seen without his security guards standing with pilgrims.
Being one of the most protected politicians of the country he chooses not to take his security with him rather he opted to inform the Special Protection Group about his decision of solo-travelling, as he was on a personal pilgrimage, disclosed a close source to Rahul Gandhi.
Minutes after a few photos of Rahul Gandhi from his pilgrimage yatra emerged on social media sites on Friday, a group of netizen erupted over the authenticity of these pictures just like the earlier issue.
Even Giriraj Singh, the Minister of the state for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the Modi government, raised questioned over his photos and claimed it as a photo-shopped picture, as Giriraj Singh commented over the photos that this appears to be photo-shopped… the shadow of the stick is missing.

Responding to the Minister’s ‘photo-shopped’ charge, the Congress party has hit back uploading another photo of its President Rahul Gandhi along with the record of number of footsteps and total kilometers he has covered so far by walking during his ongoing Kailash-Mansarovar yatra. This seemed like a desperate measure to prove the honesty of the party President.
According to reports, Gandhi is likely to cover 60 km on foot.
In the recent pictures, Rahul Gandhi can be seen in jeans, jacket, a pair of sunglasses and a snapback cap. In a video which was shared by a fellow pilgrim, Gandhi is seen standing with a group against the backdrop of snow-capped mountain ranges.

Meanwhile, Gandhi’s pilgrimage has come under sharp criticism from the Modi led BJP government. The party even questioned Gandhi’s choice of route via Nepal, as they claimed Rahul is on his way to visiting China and the government needs to know who he is meeting there.
