A post is going viral on the internet claiming that before the fourth phase of 2019 general elections, Modi has given the contract of Lucknow airport to Adani Group for 50 years.
“लोकसभा चुनाव के चौथे चरण से पहले लखनऊ का चौधरी चरण सिंह अन्तराष्ट्रया हवाई अड्डा 50 साल के लिए अडानी को सौप दिया मोदी ने” – the text read.
At the time of filing this report, the post had more than 2000 shares.
When we fact-checked the post, we found out that the post is misleading.
When we searched for the post on Google, we found news reports dated back in February 2019.
In Feb, Adani Group emerged as the highest bidder for five airports. The Gautam Adani-led infra major has won the bids to operate Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Mangalore, Trivandrum and Lucknow airports for the next 50 years.
The fourth phase of the election took place on 29th April 2019.
The above information proves that the news is misleading.
