0 152

Amid the ongoing rift between Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena, two  pictures of cars, in a single file, moving in the same direction, are being circulated on social media with a claim that these pictures are of the Karni Sena leaving for Maharashtra in 1000 vehicles, to extend their support to Bollywood actor, Kangana Ranaut.
“कंगना राणावत के सम्मान में, 1000 गाड़ियों के साथ करणी सेना महाराष्ट्र रवाना। साभार – सोशल मीडिया” the post read.
(Translation: In honour of Kangana Ranavat (name misspelt), Karni Sena leaves for Maharashtra with 1000 vehicles. Credits – Social Media)

NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found that the pictures in circulation are old.
On putting the picture through the Reverse Image search, we found the same picture on Twitter in a post, from 2018.
In the 2018 picture, Congress leader Sachin Pilot has been added digitally but the rest of the image is same.

However, NewsMobile independently couldn’t ascertain the origin of the image.
We put the image through Google Reverse Image Search and found the same image in several tweets from 2017. Another tweet can be seen here.

NewsMobile could not independently verify the origin and location of these pictures but it is clear that the pictures in question are old.
Hence, from the above fact check, it is clear that the post in question is misleading and false.
