When we tried to investigate the truth behind janeu picture, it was revealed that the photo is from  Priyanka's Varanasi tour. The photo of the alleged Janeu white yarn is found in the photo. The claim of this photo proved false even when many news reports and video footage of the Varanasi tour was found.

मैने पुरूषों को तो जनेउ धारण करते देखा हैं क्योंकि जनेऊ पहनने से पुरुषों को बृहम्चारी का पालन करना पडता है।
लेकिन प्रियंका गांधी जी को जनेऊ धारण करने की क्या जरुरत पड गयी ।आप फोटो मे साफ देख सकते है।

Facebook page We Support Amit Shah Modi Mission 2019’ has shared the image with the caption: Everyone in the family is wearing janeu. Someone should tell her that women don’t wear janeu (Chowkidar ka dar Pura khandan janeu pehen kar dar badar ghum raha hai koi inhe batao auraten janeu nahi pehenti).

A Facebook user, 'Brij Singh', posted four photos of Priyanka with the caption: After all, who are you @Priyankagandhi? (Aakhir kaun ho tum? @Priyankagandhi).

It’s does n’t stop here one more viral picture shows her offering prayers wearing a red dupatta and tilak. This photo was taken during her visit to Vindhyavasini Devi temple in Mirzapur. The photo is been cropped. Priyanka was not alone; she was accompanied by Rahul Gandhi during a campaign in Amethi for the Lok Sabha elections that year.
