The claim comes in the backdrop of state assembly elections.
Those sharing the video captioned it, "Look at the criminal grin on the face of #RahulGandhi while downplaying barbaric beheading of #KanhaiyaLal ji and calling monsters’ act as silly stuff. He also pardoned both killers."

4. Claim About Biology Not Being Required To Appear for NEET Is Misleading!
Some social media users have shared posts which claim that students without biology as a subject in their Class 12 curriculum can still become doctors.
These posts cite new education policy guidelines, stating that they permit aspirants to appear for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) even without studying the subject.
This has been attributed to the National Medical Commission (NMC).
However, this claim is misleading.
The NMC released new guidelines on 22 November which permit students with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in Classes eleven and twelve to appear for NEET.
However to appear for NEET, students who did not have Physics, Chemistry and Biology/Biotechnology can take them up as "additional subjects" after graduating from Class 12 from boards recognised by the government.
