Fact-Check:

Upon performing a simple reverse image search we found that the image was used in an article by The Hindu announcing the death of a veteran  photographer named Sridhar Naidu, who frequently photographed Gandhi. 

In the article, the image is clearly captioned that the Gandhi was eating corn on a cob and not fish.

Image used in the article

 The image used by the users looks to be slightly blurred trying to create the illusion of a fish. This claim is fake
