Summary

A viral picture of a family having tea while sitting in a flooded street is being shared with a false claim that the image is from Delhi. The picture is actually 4-years-old from Mansa, Punjab, and has nothing to do with Delhi.

A picture of a family having tea and snacks in the middle of a flooded street with their legs immersed in dirty water has gone viral on social media. The posts claim that the image is from Delhi, which shows the post heavy rain situation of the city.

General Secretary BJP Delhi Ravinder Gupta tweeted a picture with a claim that “A heartfelt thanks to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Ji who turned the Kirari Assembly into London. See how a whole family is sitting in the London street enjoying “hot- hot tea” and biscuits. Kejriwal Ji does not show better days than this.”

The tweet was also shared by Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the national spokesperson of Akali Dal.

Several social media users shared the same picture on Facebook and Twitter with the same narrative.
