A picture has gone viral on social media in which women are holding placards that read “Modi Chor” (“Modi is a thief”).

A Facebook page Azamgarh Express which has over 1.2 million followers shared the viral picture and was reshared by nearly 7,000 people.

A parody Twitter handle of Congress President Rahul Gandhi also shared the same picture on Twitter with the caption that read: “1st time in 70 years #AyushmanBharat #PMJAYluanch in Ranchi with #ModiChorHai Placard”.

FACT CHECK

When NewsMobile fact-checked the viral image, we found out that the above picture is FAKE and it has been photoshopped.

On putting the image through Google Reverse Image Search, we managed to get the real image.

The original photo was tweeted by Ministry of Health’s Verified twitter handle which was clicked at the launch of the Ayushman Bharat scheme in Ranchi, an event attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi

The picture was very conveniently manipulated as the text on the placard women were holding was changed with the help of photoshop.
