A picture of a road is being shared on social media claiming that it the Ranchi-Gaya ring road in Jharkhand.
“Shri Narendra Modi ji dwara Banwaya Gaya Ranchi Jharkhand me Ring Road click here👇👇👇👇👇👇 https://youtu.be/pUtUcbFYYCU” – the caption read.

The post was shared in a group that has more than 1 lakh members.
When we fact-checked this, we found out the pictures are not from Jharkhand.
The first thing we notice in the picture was the metro and Jharkhand doesn’t have a metro line.
On putting the image through Reverse Image Search on Yandex, we found out that this image is of Delhi-Meerut Expressway. We found a similar picture on Getty Image.
NEW DELHI, INDIA – MAY 27: A view of Delhi-Meerut expressway on NH24, a 9km long section which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on May 27, 2018 in New Delhi, India. Modi travelled 6km in an open jeep on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway, built at a cost of Rs 841 crore. The Delhi-Meerut Expressway is expected to bring down the time to commute between national capital and Meerut to 45 minutes.

And for the second picture, it is a stock photo.

This proves that the images used to show Gaya-Ranchi ring road are not from Jharkhand and the post should not be shared further.
