In the wake of US President Donald Trump's visit to Ahmedabad, a picture has become viral on social media with a claim that these pictures are from Gujarat.
A Facebook user Nimal C R shared a collage of two pictures. One of these pictures, which looks like a digital graphics photo, has a caption written on it, "Gujarat 2014". The second picture is of a slum. The caption on the second picture reads, "Gujarat nowadays".
After doing the reverse image search, we found that the viral pictures are not from Gujarat. The first picture is a Wallpaper image and the second picture is from Mumbai.
The first picture is taken from a Website called "Wallpaperflare.com" in which the same picture can be seen with a caption 'Futuristic cityscape, green grass, fantasy'. This wallpaper picture is not real but is a symbolic graphical picture.
The second picture is of Mumbai's slum which has been used many times in different news websites. We found a news article of DNA in which the same picture is used with a caption 'slums Mumbai Dwellers, who lived on upper floors, claim that they have been declined accommodation under the scheme, while most of them have been rehabilitated and have got flats'.
The photographs that are being used to compare Gujarat in 2014 and 2020 have no connection with Gujarat. The first picture used is a wallpaper image and the second picture is from Mumbai.
