Fact Check: Did Aditya Yogi Nath and Akhilesh Yadav and his family  meet post elections?

A picture is circulating on social media showing Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath along with Samajwadi Party chief  Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uncle Shivpal Yadav.

People are claiming that these three are meeting after the recently conducted elections.

Many shared it on Facebook under the caption, “Uncle Shivpal, Papa Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Yadav came to congratulate after the victory, this is called politics”(translate Hindi)

Fact Check:

We Reverse search the image to find the authenticity of the picture. We found that the picture belongs to the year 2019.

This similar picture of showing Yogi Adityanath meeting Akhilesh Yadav, his father Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uncle Shivpal Yadav was shared by an article covered by NDTV with the headline, “UP CM Yogi Adityanath met Mulayam Singh Yadav, said this by tweeting (translate Hindi)

Then we also found the same picture on a tweet by ANI/UP under the caption, “UP CM Yogi Adityanath meets SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav at his residence. MS Yadav was admitted to hospital yesterday due to high levels of blood sugar. SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav and Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party Chief Shivpal Yadav were also present.”


Hence the picture is circulating with a false claim.
