After the BJP accused Rahul Gandhi of sharing photoshopped posts of his ongoing Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, the Congress party has posted statistical data of its party president's activities, revealing that as of 17:49, most likely on Thursday, he had taken 46,433 steps that day.

The data reveals the following:

  • That he walked/ran/climbed 34.31 km
  • That he burned 4466 calories
  • That this activity took place over 463 minutes

At the time that the information was captured, Rahul Gandhi's heart rate was 73 beats per minute, versus his resting heart rate of 69 bpm.

The Congress' tweet also contains an image of Rahul Gandhi and the caption:

Leaving all the haters behind, Congress President @RahulGandhi sets the pace during his #KailashYatra. Can you keep up?

The Congress and Rahul Gandhi have been posting visuals of the latter's Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.

However, the BJP has alleged 'smoke and mirrors', with Union MoS Giriraj Singh tweeting a photo of Rahul Gandhi and opining that the photo is fake because the 'reflection of the stick is missing.'

Rahul Gandhi, a self-described Shiv Bhakt, had departed for the Kailash Mansarovar on August 31 via Nepal. At the time of his departure, a controversy had broken out as it emerged that the Chinese ambassador to India had wanted to give him a ceremonial send off at the Delhi airport. 

The Mansarovar Lake is located near Mount Kailash in the Tibet Autonomous Region and is considered sacred for a number of religions that originated in India. The lake is at a high altitude above sea level and pilgrims generally travel a long distance on foot to get there.
