Fact Check: No, PM Modi Did Not Visit Ambani’s Newborn Grandson At The Hospital; Here’s The Truth

A picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in what appears to be a hospital ward is being shared on social media. In the picture, business tycoon Mukesh Ambani and his wife Nita Ambani can also be seen.

“जिस देश के प्रधानमंत्री के पास बरसात और ठंड मे 16 दिन से बैठे किसानों से मिलने का समय नहीं है, लेकिन अम्बानी के घर पोता होने पर जाकर बधाई देने का समय है,” the Facebook post read.

FACT CHECK

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

A simple Reverse Image Search on the image led us to a Financial Express report from 2014, with the same image.

The picture caption read: PM Narendra Modi is welcomed by Reliance Industries’ Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani on his arrival for the re-dedication and inauguration of HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai. PTI

We also noticed that the original picture was flipped and circulated online.

We then ran a keyword search and found multiple reports about PM Modi inaugurating HN Reliance Foundation hospital in Mumbai.

We also found that the video of the entire event was available on the official YouTube channel of Narendra Modi and PMO India.

The above fact check proves that the picture in circulation is OLD and the post in question is false and misleading.
