Kerala’s electricity minister shares fake picture of a solar power plant in Kerala

This whole phenomenon of sharing this fake picture seems to have begun after an online website named, “The Logical Indian” curated a news report about the installation of India’s largest solar power plant at Banasura Sagar reservoir in Wayanad region of Kerala.

The website incidentally used this picture in question as a “representational image” for the article:

The truth of the matter is that, this picture in question is from South Korea and is part of LG CNS‘s Otae Reservoir in Sangju, North Gyeongsang Province. This plant, as per the report was constructed in 2015 and has now been recycled by prominent twitter accounts:
