PM Narendra Modi visited the victims of the Odisha triple train accident on June 3, a day after the tragedy that killed around 300 people and left thousands injured. Meanwhile, photos of renovation work being done are shared by DMK members to claim that the renovation process at Cuttack government hospital in Odisha is going on in full swing on account of the PM’s arrival. Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here and here.

What is the truth?

When reverse-searching the viral images we found that the images are old and unrelated to the Odisha train accident.

India Today article dated 1, November 2022 is found carrying the viral images mentioning that the entire civil hospital in Morbi was filled with cleaning staff and renovation work was done ahead of PM’s visit to the hospital to see the victims of the suspension bridge collapse in Morbi that killed more than 130 people and left many injured.
