Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for Asia’s largest Noida International Airport tomorrow. Proud of its many features, it will be India’s first net zero-emissions airport.
On November 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the Noida International Airport near Jewar in the Gautam Buddha Nagar district. Following the event, government social media accounts and several BJP leaders shared a video showing the aerial view of the two airports.
What is the Truth?
One of the photos shared as Noida Airport is a photo of Terminal 2 at Incheon International Airport in South Korea. Another photo is of Beijing Daxing International Airport in China.
These two different airport pictures are incorporated in the video claiming as Noida airport, and the video is shared by several verified Twitter accounts. ‘mygovindia’ first posted the video and is followed by the accounts of ‘mygovhindi’, Keshav Prasad Maurya, Anurag Thakur, Arjun Ram Meghwal, Prahlad Singh Patel, Annapurna Devi, Pankaj Singh, Sunil Yadav.
A Twitter account ‘Shen Shiwei’, China state-affiliated media tweeted the collage of all the tweets describing as “Shocked to know that Indian government officials had to use photographs of China Beijing Daxing International Airport as proof of their achievements of infrastructure”.
It is apparent that pictures of airports in South Korea and China have been shared by various government social media accounts and BJP leaders as representative images for the upcoming airport project in Uttar Pradesh.
