Description

BJP leader Vanathi Srinivasan shared the photo as the second-largest COVID maintenance centre in India created by the RSS with 6000 beds and 4 oxygen plants in Indore, Madhya Pradesh.

Many BJP leaders and supporters across India have been sharing the photo on social media, including Twitter. We decided to find out about its authenticity.

Fact Check:

Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSP) ground in Indore, Madhya Pradesh has been converted into a Ma Akila COVID Care Center. The centre has initially started with 600 beds and can be set up up to 6,000 beds if required. It is the largest corona centre in Madhya Pradesh.

600 beds are ready for the first phase. RSS members have also volunteered. State Minister Tulsi Chilaw has said that many businessmen in Indore have provided financial assistance for the centre, ”ANI News Agency reported on April 22.

In addition, several news outlets have reported that the Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) ground has been converted into the Ma Akila COVID Care Center. Nowhere in the news is it mentioned as the Corona Maintenance Center created by the RSS.

According to IndiaTV, government officials have said that Rs 5 crore has been provided by businessmen, traders and social organizations to buy oxygen machines and equipment for patients.

Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) is a spiritual organization. The organization’s website states that it has no affiliation with any political party. The government is using the ground owned by this organization.

Conclusion

In our search, the information spread by BJP leaders that India is the 2nd largest COVID maintenance centre created by the RSS with 6000 beds and 4 oxygen plants is false.
