Images of Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting four different leaders on four different days falsely shared with a claim that PM Modi met four different people on the same day and changed his attire for every meeting.
Multiple photos of PM Modi with four different political leaders – Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, Manipur Governor Najma Heptulla, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, and Uttarakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat– are going viral on social media claiming that PM Modi changed his clothes four times while meeting four people in a single day.
A Facebook user name Shobhit Ranjan shared a post with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to “What kind of poverty is this? He met four people in a day and changed clothes all four times.” (Translated from Hindi)
In our investigation, we found that the viral claim is misleading. The images in the viral post were taken on four different days and not on the same day.
After doing reverse image research on Google, we found a Twitter post by PMO India with the same image. As per the post, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath met PM Narendra Modi on 11 June 2021, in New Delhi.
According to a report, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the latter’s official residence, 7 Lok Kalyan Marg in Delhi, on Friday, 11 June, amid speculation of discontent against the former in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
After doing reverse image research we found the same image on the website of North-East Live published on June 2, 2021. According to the report, after assuming his role as chief minister of Assam last month, Himanta Biswa Sarma met PM Modi in Delhi on June 2. The official handle of Himanta Biswa Sharma also shares the photo of him meeting PM Narendra Modi.
After doing a reverse image search, we found a Twitter post by PMO India with the same image. This post says that Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat called on PM Narendra Modi and this was published on 07 June. According to a report, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat called on Prime minister Narendra Modi and apprised him of the COVID-19 situation in the state and the steps being taken by the state government to contain the spread of infection.
In conclusion, images of Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting four different leaders on four different days falsely shared with a claim that PM Modi met four different people on the same day and changed his attire for every meeting. PM Modi met UP CM Yogi Adityanath on 11 June, Manipur Governor Najma Heptulla on 10 June, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma on 02 June, and Uttarakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat on 07 June 2021.
