Congress leader Nagma Morarji today was caught spreading a morphed image of BJP leader Sambit Patra to peddle an anti-Modi agenda.
In the above image, Congress leader Nagma Morarji is caught spreading lies that BJP leader Sambit Patra ‘exposes’ Modi’s ‘lies’ in a single picture by having food on the roadside from a homeless couple which is made on a chulha instead of an LPG stove.
The image Nagma has shared has a watermark ‘@Ind_Arya’. OpIndia found the above image posted on @Ind_Arya’s timeline with the text, “Sambit Patra has announced that he will eat while sitting on the footpath and even sleep on a footpath”
शंबित पात्रा का नया ऐलान, ‘पुरी’ गरिबी को करीब से देखने के लिये पात्रा फुटपाथ पर बैठके खाना खायेंगे और रात में फुटपाथ पर सो जायेंगे. pic.twitter.com/45S5H2od1L

On further investigation it was found that @Ind_Arya had merged two pictures which then went viral and was eventually shared by Nagma as a real picture without verifying its authenticity.
Patra’s images were posted by Patra himself on his Twitter account on March 31 during his election trip in Odisha.

Actor-turned-politician Nagma recently came back into the limelight when she questioned the heroics of the armed forces in carrying out the surgical strikes on the terrorist camps inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Nagma went to claim that previous governments had also carried out similar surgical strikes.
With the first phase of voting just a few days away it is unfortunate that Congress leaders instead of being responsible are busy spreading fake images on Twitter without verifying.
