Was PM Modi's much hyped floor sweeping photo fake?


New Delhi, Jan 21: Prime Minister Narendra Modi won the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with a sweeping majority and his supporters were also busy showcasing PM Modi's humble background.

At that time a black-and-white photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi holding a broom and cleaning floor also went viral.

Modi's photo using broom was fake?

Many raised question about the source of the image at that time, but later nobody questioned about it.

However, now it seems that an answer has come and reportedly, a shocking revelation has come to fore.

According to Janta Ka Reporter, " a new RTI reply has revealed that the said image was photoshopped and the prime minister had never held broom or worn the torn khadi clothes depicted in the photo."

The RTI reply according to the report says, "...It is stated while the information sought does not form part of records, it may be noted that the said photograph is morphed and the person in the photo is not Mr Narendra Modi."

The Ahmedabad-based activist, who had filed RTI told jantakareporter.com, "We all know that Modi saheb spent so much money to win the election. To win the election, his party even used morphed photo and it was widely circulated by andh bhakt (blind supporters) or paid bhakt. That's precisely what promoted to file an RTI request to cross verify if the photo was genuine."

Reportedly, the photo was fake and it was photoshopped and apparently, this is the real image.
