A video of Indian opposition politician Rahul Gandhi purportedly showing him opposing waiving loans for farmers has circulated online amid protests against new agricultural laws. The claim is false; the video has been edited from a longer speech from May 2018, in which he criticised the Indian government for refusing to waive farmers’ loans.
