CLAIM ID

Residents of a village in Bihar erected a signboard that stated BJP workers were barred from entering the village.

An old image is edited to show that BJP workers are banned from entering a village in Bihar.

An old image is edited to show that BJP workers are banned from entering a village in Bihar.A viral image with the claim that BJP workers are not allowed inside the village of Jagdishpur, Bihar, is circulating on social media. We have found this to be false.

On verification, we came to know that the signboard was put up by the residents of Kachera Varsabad, a village in Greater Noida, Gautam Budh Nagar. The villagers had been upset against the local MP Mahesh Sharma for his inaction against the realtors who allegedly did not pay fair compensation to the landowners. The incident happened in 2018, and the media covered the news.

The image dates back to 2018 and comparing the viral image with the original shows that the image in circulation is a morphed version. Hence we mark the claim as misleading.
