Vishvas News (New Delhi): An edited picture of UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Mukesh Ambani is going viral on social media. It is being claimed that the Chief Minister is presenting the design of the Ram temple to Ambani. Vishvas News investigated the viral post and found that the photo is edited and has been created by editing two different pictures.

Claim

Twitter handle Armaan Pathan posted a fake picture of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Mukesh Ambani, claiming: ‘First thing is it is almost impossible to build a Ram temple because there is sand under that land..! The second thing is that even if it is ever built, it will be less of a temple and more of Ambani’s hotel. I am sorry but it will be only a means of earning for the capitalists..!’

Investigation

Vishvas News started searching the related keywords in Google based on the viral claim. We could not find any news that corroborates the viral image. After this, we started scanning the picture of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Mukesh Ambani. We found that Yogi Adityanath’s attire has a pocket on the right side, while the kurtas generally have a pocket on the left side. Similarly, looking at the hairstyle of Mukesh Ambani, the right parting on hair can be noticed, while he always does the left parting on his hair. It was clear that the photo has been flipped.

During our investigation, we found the original picture of Mukesh Ambani on a website named Desh Gujarat. In September 2016, it was reported that Mukesh Ambani went to the convocation of a university in Gandhinagar. The picture is from that time. It can be viewed here.

Similarly, the picture of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was found on his Twitter handle. In a tweet made on January 8, 2018, it was told that this is a picture of Yogi Adityanath meeting former Nepal King Gyanendra Veer Vikram Shah.

Vishvas News contacted the spokesperson of Reliance Industries. They told us that the viral post is fake.

We scanned the profile of the Facebook user Armaan Pathan who shared the viral post. We found that more than 9000 people follow him and his account was created in January 2020.

Conclusion: Vishvas News investigated the viral post and found that the viral photo of Yogi Adityanath and Mukesh Ambani is edited and has been created by editing two different pictures.
