These photos are from Mumbai, May 2020, not Pragati Maidan, Delhi.
The first photo is of a Congress MLA, Zeeshan Siddique (MLA – #VandreEast Vidhan Sabha || Youngest MLA of Maharashtra || General Secretary Mumbai Youth Congress || Masters in Global Management and public leadership) from Bandra East who tweeted this photo last month. He can be seen walking with others.
Visited the 1000 bed hospital being made for semi critical COVID 19 patients in my Bandra East assembly at BKC. Took updates from the engineers and medical staff on site along with Assistant municipal Commisioner and joint Commisioner MMRDA. We aim to start in a week’s time! pic.twitter.com/V7LsG0pxDi

I wonder how ready delhi is because that picture has ME walking inside our Covid-19 modular hospital at BKC,Bandra East – MUMBAI.
This was when we were setting the hospital up. I don’t remember visiting Delhi anytime in the recent past so clearly that’s not delhi. https://t.co/3ji4ZXRJF5
