Times of Assam team performed a fact-check and found that the picture is nohow related with Rahul Gandhi’s election rally.
Importantly Koena Mitra seems to be ignorant about Pakistani flag. She tweeted flag of ‘Indian Union Muslim League’ (IUML) as Pakistani flag.

Furthermore, the technical investigation with fact-check method found that the origin photo was clicked by one ‘T Mohandas’ in January 2016. ‘India Today’ magazine published a piece of news on January 30, 2016, with that photo. Archived Link here.
Twitter, the most popular micro-blogging website has acted in favor of the ruling party as you can see ‘abusive tweets’ are never counted by Twitter as an act of ‘violation’ when it comes about ‘money game’ for Twitter.
Now, questions are left on Election Commission of India whether it counts this as ‘violation of modal conduct’ or not.
