After the remarkable win of AAP in the Punjab Election 2022 and Bhagwant Mann taking the position of chief minister Punjab, Social media is filled with different claims about him.

Punjab Lok Congress claimed that CM Bhagwant Mann has removed the photo of Maharaja Ranjit Singh from the office of Chief Minister Punjab.

Many other users have also claimed that Punjab CM has replaced the picture with Bhagat Singh and Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar.

Fact check

After examining the claim and doing a google reverse image search, we found a tweet of ANI posting the image of Bhagwant Singh’s cabinet meet. We can see the picture of Ranjit Singh in the office behind the seat of Bhagwant Mann.

Another claim, where the opposition is claiming that the picture has always been hung behind the seat of the CM or in the Centre of the hall is incorrect. In the report of ANI in 2021 when former Chief Minister, Charanjit Singh Channi held a cabinet meeting in Punjab, the picture of Maharaja Ranjit was not placed at the back. Therefore the claim is misleading.

Conclusion: the claim is misleading.

Claim review: Bhagwant Mann remove the picture of Maharaja Ranjit Singh from the CM office

Claim by: Punjab Lok Congress
