Fact Check: Morphed image falsely shared to show MP Sanjay Raut making tea for PM Modi

  • Share


The picture of Shiv Sena Member of Parliament (MP) Sanjay Raut making tea for Prime Minister Narendra Modi is photoshopped.

A picture of  Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is seen with Prime Minister Narendra Modi is getting viral on social media. At the same time, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut is seen making tea on a table kept in the middle of the hall.

A Twitter user name Abhimanyu Rathore shared an image with a caption in India which can be roughly translated to "The man who used to keep targeting the tea seller 24 hours. Today, he is making tea for the same tea seller".

The same image is also widely shared on Facebook.

Fact Check

In our investigation, we found that the claim is misleading and the viral image is edited.

After doing reverse image research on google, we found a news article from India Today which carried the real image. The caption along with the image reads, "PM Narendra Modi in a meeting with Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, Deputy CM Ajit Pawar and Cabinet Minister Ashok Chavan (L) in New Delhi, on June 8, 2021. 

According to the article, on June 8, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his 7 Lok Kalyan Marg residence in New Delhi. It was the CM’s second visit outside the state, and his first to Delhi, since taking over as chief minister on November 28, 2019. 

We also compared both the viral and original image and found that the viral image is created with the help of editing software.

We also came to know from where the photo of Sanjay Raut seen in the fake picture has been taken. We found the same image used in an article by News18 Lokmat published on 24 March 2020.

In conclusion, a picture of Shiv Sena Member of Parliament (MP) Sanjay Raut making tea for Prime Minister Narendra Modi is photoshopped.
