Parody Tweet About Bhagwant Mann Fasting During Navratri Shared as Real
The tweet was posted by a parody Twitter account of Aam Aadmi Party Gujarat.
However, we found that the tweet was fake as it was shared by a parody Twitter account of AAP Gujarat and not the official one.
The claim suggests that Punjab CM Mann will fast for nine days during Navratri, and he will not even consume water. Lokmat News shared the tweet on 26 September with a caption in Hindi, "पंजाब के मुख्यमंत्री भगवन्त मान नवरात्रि के नौ दिनों तक पानी तक को हाथ नहीं लगाएँगे|"
(Translation: Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann will not even consume water during the Navratri.)
The post is being widely shared on social media platforms.
WHAT WE FOUND OUT
At first, we noticed that the account handle in the viral tweet is "@18Kishann" and did not have a blue tick.
Then we checked the same handle on Twitter and found that it was a parody account of AAP Gujarat, not the official one. The bio of the account also mentions "parody account of AAP Gujarat."
Evidently, a fake screenshot is being shared by media organisations and social media users to mock the Punjab CM.
