NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the picture to be morphed and misleading.
On putting the picture through Google Reverse Image Search, we found the original picture of Rahul Gandhi on Punjab Kesari which was updated by the publication on April 11, 2015.
Further, we also found the same picture of Rahul Gandhi in another news article published by The Hindu dated March 16, 2014 (updated August 8, 2016 ) about Rahul Gandhi’s marriage plans.
With the help of FAKE vs REAL college, we can clearly see that the picture is morphed and the stand and the blood collection bottle has been added.

Hence, the picture of Rahul Gandhi donating blood is morphed. Don’t fall for altered and misleading content.
