2 versions of a set of photos are viral where two different photos of Ganga river are used, the top one is claimed as “Then” in English and “Ganga during Congress rule” in Bengali is written on dirty river and “Now” in English and “Ganga during Modi’s rule” in Bengali is written on a clean looking Ganga river with Priyanka Gandhi drinking from it.
Following post by a Bengali page ‘namosupporters.bengal’ till now received 4600 + shares
The bottom photo, the cleaner one, is falsely claimed as of from Modi’s Government rule. The photo is of Year 2012 i.e. before Modi Ji became PM.
The image is also photoshopped i.e. it’s made of 2 images, Priyanka Gandhi’s photo is of 18th March when she visited Sangam and the background is of Year 2012
Photo forensics proves that the photo of the clean Ganga was taken in January 2012 by Nikon D90 camera.
ABP News uploaded the video of Priyanka Gandhi’s visit, taken from different angle
A similar Fake News was spread in Feb 2019 as 10 Year challenge and was debunked by SMHoaxSlayer
The first photo i.e. the top one is from Year 2009 which was used falsely by Congress last year to target Modi government.
प्रधानमंत्री की कुर्सी हाथ आते ही माँ गंगा के स्व-घोषित बेटे ने गंगा सफाई से मुँह मोड़ लिया। माँ गंगा से जुड़ी परियोजनाओं ने दम तोड़ दिया और जुमलेबाज बेटे की धोखेबाजी अभी भी लगातार जारी है।#MaaGangaSeDhoka pic.twitter.com/6cdCGrRIug

More False –
#SwachhBharat – Swachh Ganga.
Namami Gange has been 100% successful. What could have been better than Priyanka Gandhi herself vouching after drinking Ganga Water.
Thank you Priyanka for Campaigning for Modi ji's Unprecedented Excellent Work.
