A fake screenshot of a Tweet is attributed to Assam Chief Minister over the closure of educational institutions in the state.
The State Disaster Management Authority of Assam (ASDMA) had announced on 6 September the reopening of physical classes for higher secondary, graduation, and post-graduation institutions in a phased manner. The administration has not issued any further order altering the previous order. Further, the Assam chief minister himself clarified on Twitter that the news was fake and asked the police to take action in the matter.
We mark the claim as false as the screenshot of the purported order is fake.
