On putting the picture through a Reverse Image Search, we found the original picture which was tweeted by Patra himself.

The picture was tweeted by Sambit Patra on August 1, 2020, marking the death anniversary of revolutionary Bal Gangadhar Tilak. In the original picture, he can be seen sketching Bal Gangadhar Tilak’s portrait.

In the above FAKE vs REAL collage, it is clear that the Bal Gangadhar Tilak’s sketch was replaced by the text using photo editing software to create a false narrative.
