FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the claim to be false.

We scanned through the Facebook and Twitter accounts of Akhilesh Yadav but did not find any such post.

We also ran a keyword search and an advance search on both the platforms but did not find any post on the lines of the viral statement.

Moreover, while examining the viral screenshot carefully, we noticed the Hindi alphabet ‘अ’ on the top right corner of the Facebook post.

We then checked on Facebook and found that the language option comes before a message is posted. It doesn’t show in an already posted message.

From the above information, it is clear that the post was made using editing software to create a false narrative. Hence, the post in question is Fake.
