Fact Check: This Image Of Mukesh Ambani Presenting Ram Temple’s Photo To Yogi Adityanath Is Morphed

A picture of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath with the chairperson of Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani is doing rounds on social media.

In the picture, Ambani can be seen presenting a photo frame of the proposed design of Ram Temple to Yogi Adityanath.

The text of the picture read, ‘Ambani ne chunaav ke liye Yogi ko apna samarthan sunishchit kiya’. (Translation- Ambani assured his support to Yogi for the elections)

पहली बात ऐ के राम मंदिर का बनना लगभग नामुमकिन है क्यों के उस जमीन के नीचे रेत बालू है..! दूसरी बात ये की अगर कभी बन भी गई तो वो मंदिर कम अम्बानी का होटल जायद होगा माफी चाहता हूँ पर वो सिर्फ एक कमाई का जरिया होगा पूंजीपतियों के लिए..! ये तसवीर यही दर्शाती है….“, the caption of the picture read.

(Translation- Firstly, it is almost impossible to build a Ram temple because of the quality of the sand! Secondly, even if it is ever built, that temple will become Ambani’s hotel. I am sorry but it will be only a means of earning for the capitalists..! That’s what this picture shows….)

NewsMobile fact-checked these posts and found that the picture is edited.

On cropping the picture and putting it through Reverse Image Search, we found the picture on Yogi Adityanath‘s verified Twitter handle dated January 8, 2018.

In the picture, Adityanath can be seen presenting a photo frame of the Kumbh 2019 logo to Gyanendra Veer Vikram Shah, the former King of Nepal.

Further, we cropped Ambani’s picture and put it through Reverse Image Search and found a similar picture in a Gujarati media portal, Desh Gujarat dated September 16, 2016.

The picture was taken when Ambani had attended the convocation ceremony of Pandit Deendayal Energy University in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. In the original photo, Ambani is posing with Gujarat Chief Minister, Vijay Rupani.

On comparing all the three pictures, it becomes clear that two pictures have been morphed to make it seem like Ambani was presenting the photo frame to Yogi Adityanath.

Finally, on putting the photo frame of the design of the Ram Temple through Reverse Image Search, we found an art piece being sold on Amazon, which is similar to the one in the viral image.

This clearly establishes the fact that the picture has been edited. Thus, proving that Mukesh Ambani did not present any photo frame of Ram Temple to Yogi Adityanath.
