Fact Check: The Viral Picture Showing Garlands On PM Modi & CM Yogi’s Photos

Breaking Political

Social Media platforms had a good laugh when a picture of Indian Prime Minister & Uttar Pradesh chief minister with garlands on their respective photo’s hung at U.P’s Bulandsehar nagar Palika office wall went Viral, garlanding photos is a general norm to adorn & showing respect to the deceased people.
The person chairing the meeting of Palika officials is nagar Palika chairman Mr. Manoj Garg who ironically belongs to BJP


The Photo’s were garlanded on the occasion of Independence day “15th August 2018”.
The garlands were removed as soon as the officials realised the mistake but it was too late as the pictures had already made to the social platforms.
“In response to the above goof-up executive officer of nagar Palika parishad Mr. A.K Singh, have said that they have constituted a probe into the matter and a report will be submitted to the chairman and the person responsible for the act will be punished.”
We did a fact check on the story and found that this story was shared by various local news papers like paprika, Navbharat-times, divyamarathi-bhaskar to name a few, when contacted the E.O, we were told that the report is still to be submitted.
FactCrescendo verifies this story as true

  2. This is a real laugh. I am from Bengal and recently I saw a similar kind of a thing on the occasion of Independence Day… There was garlands on the picture of Mamata Banerjee, Bengal’s CM. That was funny and we thought how can someone do this!!! But it’s good to know we are not only doing this… Rest of India also does that. Hi hi
