A healthcare worker in Delhi made an obscene gesture towards prime minister Narendra Modi.

The image of Prime Minister Modi making rounds on social media has been morphed.

The image of Prime Minister Modi making rounds on social media has been morphed.A post on social media states that a female healthcare worker made an obscene gesture towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the vaccination site at the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in Delhi on October 21, 2021. The claim is baseless, and the image in the post has been doctored.

According to a report by the Indian Express, Modi’s visit came after India administered 100 crores (1 billion) COVID-19 vaccines to its citizens.

Using reverse image search, we found the original photo in a report by the Indian Express. It was also shared on Twitter by Home Minister Amit Shah on the same day. We can see that in the original image that the woman is not making any crude gesture but simply touching the glass with her hands. On comparing the viral picture with the original one, we found glaring differences between the two. Hence, we mark the claim as false.
