Edited picture of PM Modi gets viral with misleading claims- Read Fact Check
An Image of PM Narendra Modi is getting viral on social media sites. In the image PM, Modi can be seen in a praying posture, and just in front of him, a photographer can be seen taking pictures of PM Modi lying on the ground. Social media users are sharing pictures with sarcastic captions over them.
A user on Twitter wrote, “Looks like the photographer was lying down again!” (English Translation)
While another user wrote, “How much do Modi’s cameramen earn?
To investigate the above claim DFRAC team did a reverse image search and found many look-alike pictures of PM Modi.
We found the same image along with some other images on the official Twitter handle of PM Modi with the caption, “Took part in a prayer meeting at the Gandhi Smriti in Delhi.”
Further investigating team found a report on INDIA TV with the caption, “PM Narendra Modi pays tribute to Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi’s Gandhi Smriti.”
No image shared by social media users can be seen. This shows that the image is edited and misleading.
