Gujarat Congress’ official Twitter handle uses an image from Congress era to criticise Modi govt’s Ganga cleaning project

 Congress' IT cell had recently used a sly tactic to make a video where a part of PM Modi's speech in Gujarat was carefully manipulated to make it sound as if the PM has used an abusive word.

Congress has begun to become synonymous with lies and forgery. Not only its leaders keep blatantly repeating their worn out lies, but even their social media handles have also been caught a number of times trying to spread fake news and misinformation.

In another such incident, the official handle of Gujarat Congress was seen using an older image to criticise the NDA government’s Ganga cleaning project.

In the tweet shared by the Gujarat Congress’ official handle, they have shared an image where on one side there is an image of a clean ghat of Ganga, saying “This is the image BJP shows in its campaigns”. On the other side, there is an image of a dirty riverbank with piles of garbage, with the caption “This is the truth of Ganga BJP doesn’t show in its ads”.

However, the image of the dirty riverbank with heaps of garbage is a much older one, probably one from the UPA era.

Twitter user Ankur Singh caught the lie being spread by Congress.

As pointed out by Ankur, the image was used in a website called indiawaterportal.org for an article on the Ganga Action plan. The article is dated 10.04.2014, clearly indicating that the image of a dirty river bank must have been older, from a pre-NDA government time.

 Congress’ IT cell had recently used a sly tactic to make a video where a part of PM Modi’s speech in Gujarat was carefully manipulated to make it sound as if the PM has used an abusive word.

Before that, Congress had made another propaganda video where they have used images from the UPA era to claim the Modi government has ruined the country in 5 years. In the two-minute video where images were shared at a rapid pace, older images were slyly inserted to blame the Modi government.

Using fake images and older images to spread their malicious propaganda is something the Congress has been doing repeatedly. Recently, the Congress Sevadal had used a fake image featuring Smriti Irani to spread lies and sexist comments about the textile minister.

Congress and their ecosystem are also very apt at spreading fake news against their political opponents. Recently, many politicians, lawyers, and Congress friendly journalists were caught spreading fake information claiming that the NIA judge who had acquitted Swami Aseemanand in the Mecca Masjid blast case, has joined the BJP. The claim was proven to be false as ironically, the image they had shared claiming t be the judge, was Congress’ own former Chhattisgarh working president Ram Dayal Uike, joining the BJP.
