On 17th February, Kavita Krishnan posted a tweet saying that while the entire nation is crying due to the Pulwama attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with his friends like Nitish Kumar, Sakshi Maharaj are laughing and having fun at election rallies. She made the comments while sharing a tweet by another Twitter user who had posted a photograph which shows Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar laughing together. 

 Youth Congress also tweeted the same picture of PM Modi and Nitish Kumar in a collage of photographs.

Our Investigation

We did a reverse image search and found that the image dates to back July 2015. An article published by The Indian Express on July 26, 2015, had carried the photograph.

The caption of the photo reads “PM Narendra Modi, Nitish Kumar in Patna on Saturday". PM Modi and Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had shared the stage at the launch event of a railway project in Patna, months before the Bihar assembly election in 2015.
