A set of four photos shared with a caption 'wherever a poor old woman is needed, Congress brings her'. (Hindi: जहाँ भी गरीब बुढ़िया की जरूरत हो कांग्रेस इसको ले आती है |)
A set of four photos - three showing elderly women embracing politicians and the fourth showing an old woman blessing former Madhya Pradesh CM Kamalnath - has been shared with a false claim that the women are all the same. BOOM had previously fact checked a set of three images of old women sharing space with Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Shashi Tharoor, and BJP leader K Surendran. We found that they had distinctly different facial features. The photo of an old woman with Kamalnath, however, was earlier viral with a different claim and is a recent addition to the misinformation.
