Explanation

An image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi where the digital clock behind him showing the time as 4.20 is being shared widely on social media platforms. Social media users seem to mock him by sharing the image and quoting it as ‘apt capture’. Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here and here.

What is the truth?

When searching the image with Google lens it is found that the time in the digital clock behind Modi is altered.

The ‘Navbharat Times’ article dated 14, December 2021 is found carrying the original version of the viral image with the title ‘Narendra Modi in Varanasi: People were sleeping in the middle of the night, then ‘Chowkidar’ roamed the streets of Varanasi, see photos’. This image shows the time as 1.13 in the digital clock behind Modi.

One of the tweets dated 13, December 2021 from the Twitter page of Narendra Modi is found with the original version of the viral image with the caption ‘Next stop…Banaras station. We are working to enhance rail connectivity as well as ensure clean, modern and passenger friendly railway stations.’

This image too shows the time as 1.13 instead of 4.20 proving to us that the viral image is edited.

Recently, a photoshopped image of Modi with Rihanna on stage, and another edited image with his mother and estranged wife were circulated on social media.
