Amid the Coronavirus scare, a picture of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath, is doing rounds on social media in which he can be seen with cows that are wearing masks.
The caption in Hindi read: “कभी सींग पर लाइट, कभी मास्क, हम यूपी वाले तो आप जैसा सीएम पाकर धन्य हो गए बाबाजी।”
NewsMobile fact-checked the above picture and found it to be FAKE.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found the original picture in a news report by Hindustan Times.
According to the caption, the picture was taken when Adityanath fed cows at a gaushala in UP’s Gorakhpur.
In the above FAKE vs REAL collage, it is clear that masks on cows’ face were superimposed using photo editing software.
