What is the truth?
When we reverse-searched the viral image, we found that the photo was edited and not real. The original photo is featured in an article published in The Quint. This article, dated April 2019, is about the late Kannada actor Rajkumar. The photo is captioned “Dr Rajkumar seen in the photo with former prime minister Indira Gandhi at a Sangeetha Music event” and is credited to Sangeetha Music.
The original photo shows another person in place of Modi. This clarifies that the image was edited. We also came across News 18 Kannada’s YouTube video featuring the original photo at the timestamp of 1:19 minutes. This photo also shows another person in place of Modi.
It has been found that the image of Narendra Modi with Indira Gandhi is edited and fake. The original photo shows another person in place of Modi.
