How did we find out?: We noticed that the viral photo carried the watermark of Getty Images.
Taking a cue from this, we looked for the photo on the stock image website, where we found the viral image.
Its caption mentioned that the photo showed a meeting between Kejriwal and Gadkari on 16 September 2014, during which the two had discussed the regularisation of e-rickshaws.
Kejriwal apologised in 2018: During our investigation, we came across news reports about Kejriwal apologising to Gadkari in 2018.
It mentioned that in 2014, the Delhi chief minister had called Gadkari "one of the country's most corrupt politicians," after which Gadkari filed a defamation suit.
Facing a slew of cases, Kejriwal then apologised for "making unverified allegations" against Gadkari, after which both jointly appealed in court to drop the defamation case.
Conclusion: A nine-year-old photo of a meeting between Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari is being shared with a false claim that it is a recent picture of Kejriwal apologising to Gadkari.
