Some people, including famous Kannada actor Dr. Rajkumar, are also seen in the photo. Photographer has claimed that Modi was a Congressman at that time. This photo has been shared more than ten thousand times with different Facebook profiles. 

This image has been shared by a Facebook page called the Andhbhakt Dhulai Center with a caption "Sahab To Congressi Nikale, Bhakto ab Kya Karoge" which can be roughly translated to "Saheb turned out to be a Congressman. Bhakts what will you do now".
