Fake news that Edappadi Palaniswami is tested positive for monkeypox!
Opposition leader Edappadi Palaniswami has tested positive for monkeypox!
A Puthiya Thalaimurai news card is being shared on social media that AIADMK Interim General Secretary Edappadi Palaniswami has been diagnosed with monkeypox.
It is also spread that the Former minister and AIADMK MLA Sellur Raju has condemned Chief Minister Stalin as saying, “It is one-sided politics to wish Panneerselvam a speedy recovery, who is pretending to be tested Corona positive, but not inquiring about the health of Edappadi, who is suffering from monkeypox.”
What is the truth?
It was reported in the news that monkeypox has been confirmed in Kerala. Subsequently, Tamil Nadu Health Minister M. Subramanian gave an interview that no one has been affected by monkeypox in Tamil Nadu.
A check on Puthiya Thalaimurai’s social media pages about the news card circulating about Edappadi Palaniswami suffering from monkeypox resulted in no such post. This news card of Puthiya Thalaimurai is of old news card format.
In this regard, when we contacted the digital section of Puthiya Thalaimurai, “This is fake. We have not published it,” they said.
Next, a search on the page of Junior Vikatan news did not reveal any news about “Monkeypox for Edappadi Palaniswami”. On the contrary, when searching about Sellur Raju, “OPS should meet EPS and apologize for his actions..! – Sellur Raju” was published. In it, they have edited the fake news.
The news spread that opposition leader Edappadi Palaniswami has tested positive for monkeypox is fake.
