Explanation

The Lok Sabha election 2024 dates are soon going to be announced and all the parties are very much ready for the polls and for participating in their respective states and districts. Uttar Pradesh has the highest 80 Lok Sabha seats. Uttar Pradesh plays a vital role in the Lok Sabha election because all national parties as well as few regional parties also put enough efforts to win the elections. 

On April 16, 2023 Atiq Ahmed, a former mafia member turned politician and his brother Ashraf were shot dead in front of the media in Prayagraj when three individuals opened fire on brother-duo near a medical college in Prayagraj. 

Meanwhile a post with a picture of Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav and Member of Parliament from Mainpuri Dimple Yadav is shared to claim that both of them were folding their hands and bowing in front of the grave of gangsters Atiq Ahmed and Ashraf who were killed in the encounter.

However, many shared this as Atiq Ahmed’s grave was visited recently by Akhilesh Yadav and Dimple Yadav and these claims and images shared by many BJP supporters can be seen here, here, here, here and here
