A collage of four photos of Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting state leaders on different days is being shared with a false claim that the event is from the same day and that he changed his outfit four times for each event.
The photos show Modi in different outfits with Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat, and Manipur Governor Najma Heptulla.
The collage is being shared with the caption which translated from Hindi reads, "Met four people yesterday and changed clothes only four times, what a fakir, come on blind devotees you'll are welcome"
(In Hindi - कल चार लोगों से मिले और चार बार ही कपड़े चेंज किये ... गजब की फकीरी है....... आ जाओ अन्धभगतों स्वागत है आपका)

On searching with the same caption on Facebook, we found that the four photos were being shared with the false claim.
