Unfortunately such are the days when UNESCO have 5o debunk even jokes let apart serious fake ones.
A UNESCO fake certificate is viral claiming Gorakhpur has been declared as smartest city. It’s obviously fake from all possible angles. It’s actualy a joke for the obvious reasons, the recent by poll results.
So even a known face Shobha De tweeted it
A Fake twitter handle with the name Twitter India asked UNESCO tagging it

To which UNESCO promptly replied trying to clear the air
@DeShobhaa Dear All, we would just like to inform you that this certificate is fake. There has not been such declaration at all from @UNESCO. Thank you for taking this into consideration. Best regards,
