Photo Of Nehru Portrait At PM Modi-German Chancellor Scholz Meet Is Fake

BOOM found that the image has been doctored to include a portrait of Nehru.

A photo purporting to show a portrait of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru hanging on a wall at a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, is morphed and fake.

BOOM found that the portrait has been digitally added to the original photo which does not have a portrait of Nehru.

On May 2, PM Modi reached Berlin on the first leg of his three-nation Europe trip in which he will also visit Denmark and France. The same day, Modi met Chancellor Scholz and had a discussion about key areas of bilateral cooperation under the strategic partnership between India and Germany. The picture is doing rounds in this backdrop.

The doctored photo has been shared by several pro-Congress accounts taking a dig at Modi.
