Amarinder Singh met with Mukesh Ambani on the eve of the Bharath Bandh held by farmers' organizations.

An old image of Amarinder Singh's meeting with Mukesh Ambani held in 2017 is being circulated as a recent one.

An old image of Amarinder Singh's meeting with Mukesh Ambani held in 2017 is being circulated as a recent one.Some social media posts claimed that a meeting was held between Captain Amarinder Singh and business tycoon Mukesh Ambani, a day before farmers had called out for Bharat Bandh on Dec. 8, 2020, in the backdrop of ongoing farmers' protest against the new farm bill. The post questioned the politics played by the Congress party, saying that their own Chief Minister is backing the industrialists.

However, the actual meeting took place in 2017 in Mumbai during an event organized by the CII. The same image had been posted on the official Twitter account of Amarinder Singh on October 31, 2017. The media advisor of CM, Raveen Thukral, has also posted the details stating that the meeting was held to discuss the cooperation in telecom, data, retail and agricultural development in Punjab. Hindustan Times had carried a report on October 31, 2017, that the Punjab CM had met Ambani in Mumbai for a one-to-one meeting.

Thus, we can say that the image circulated online is an old image from 2017 and there is no evidence of the duo meeting in December 2020.
