Recently an image of business tycoon Mukesh Ambani and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath went viral on social media platforms.
It has been claimed that CM Adityanath is presenting Ambani a design of the Ram mandir.
Headline8 did a fact check on the viral image.
Twitter handle of Armaan Pathan recently uploaded the viral image stating:
“The first thing is that it is almost impossible to build a Ram temple because there is sand under that land!
The second thing is that even if it is ever built, that temple will be more or less like Ambani’s hotel.
I am sorry but it is only a means of earning for the capitalists.
That’s what this picture shows.”
Another Twitter handle Er.Ilyas Mir Magami also shared the image stating:
“Modi Ravan Raj:-
Migrant Narrative – Failed
GST Narrative – Failed
Anti PM-Cares – Failed
Central Vista Agenda – Failed
Vaccine Narrative – Failed
Now back to same Narrative = Jobs, GDP, Inflation and farmers’ protest ..
Here you can see the posts of Armaan Pathan and Ilyas Magami.
Headline8 did a fact check of the viral photograph and here is what was revealed:
A reverse Google image search was done on the viral photograph circulating on Social media. However, there was no picture resembling the viral image.
Headline8 also did a keyword search for Yogi Adityanath, Mukesh Ambani and Ram Mandir, but still could not find any image or news with the two personalities together.
Headline8 then closely compared the viral image and pictures of Ambani in Google.
During the search it was discovered that the image of Ambani has been flipped.
Headline8 then did a check on the Twitter profile of Adityanath and found a similar photo of the CM with former Nepal King Gyanendra.
