Fact Check: BBC has not called Left rally in Kolkata the world's largest political gathering
With assembly elections in West Bengal round the corner, the Left Front had organised a massive gathering at Kolkata's Brigade Parade Ground on February 28. Allies Congress and the newly formed Indian Secular Front also participated in the rally. Many on social media now claim that according to BBC, this was the "world's largest peaceful political gathering".
India Today Anti Fake News War Room (AFWA) has found the claim to be false.
