Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again took the oath on 30th May along with 57 other ministers.
After BJP’s big win, a message started doing rounds on social media claiming that Modi Government will give free laptops to 2 crore youngsters.
“ नरेंद्र मोदी के दोबारा प्रधानमंत्री बनने की खुशी में *मेक इन इंडिया* के तहत 2 करोड़ों युवाओं को *मुफ्त लैपटॉप* देने का ऐलान किया है, अभी तक 30 लाख युवा सफलतापूर्वक आवेदन कर चुके हैं अब आपकी बारी है अंतिम तिथि से पहले अपना आवेदन जल्द से जल्द सबमिट करें-
#bjp #modi #laptop #2019 #nmo #pmmodi #narendramodi, “ the caption read.

When NewsMobile fact-checked this, we found it to be fake.
The cybercrime branch of Delhi Police took to Twitter to bust the fake news. The cyber branch arrested an IIT Postgraduate for running a fake website under the name of the scheme.
“ Team of Cyber Crime Unit arrested IIT Post-Grad for running fake website luring people on pretext of free laptops on occasion of new government formation. In two days, the fake website had 1.5 million views. Its link was made viral over WhatsApp. Beware of such WhatsApp messages, ” the tweet read.

Madhur Verma, DCP New Delhi district, also warned people regarding this fake news.

This proves that the viral message is fake and should not be shared further.
