Explanation

Prime Minister Narendra Modi left for UAE on 30th November 2023 on a one-day trip to take part in the World Climate Action summit in which he addressed the opening session. The summit was the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held at Expo City, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He had left for India on Friday evening. Though his trip concluded, the excitement about his trip is still going on in the social media. Most notably, PM Modi’s selfie with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is the rage in social media. The selfie was tweeted by the Italian Prime Minister herself on X (formerly Twitter). The image was reposted by PM Modi captioning “Meeting friends is always a delight”

In one of the posts that reposted the selfie, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy responded with a crass comment which insinuated a romantic involvement of Prime Ministers of India and Italy, along with a veiled degenerate comment on Sonia Gandhi as well.

The disgraceful post also dragged the personal lives of both countries’ leaders. Now, a social media post is claiming that Giorgia Meloni hit back at Subramanian Swamy’s post on X which said “Thank God my friend Narendra Modi didn’t pay heed to this vile man.”

 

What is the truth?

Going through the X handle of Italian PM Meloni, we were not able to find any such post as claimed in social media. Looking at the ‘View Quotes’ section of Subramanian Swamy’s post, we did not find any such post.

Using an online site Social Blade which tracks the tweet counts of important people, we did not find any posts deleted in recent times.

There are also no credible news outlets that has reported on the alleged response by Italian Prime Minister to Subramanian Swamy’s post.

Conclusion

The claims that Italian PM Giorgia Meloni responded to Subramanian Swamy’s post on X are false and the viral image is fake.
