Bengali Hunt Desk: Former Congress minister in Madhya Pradesh Jitu Patwari on Saturday shared a picture of the inside of a plane, claiming that it was a picture of the inside of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's plane. Within hours of her tweeting, the photo went viral on social media. An investigation by PIB Fact Check found that the picture of the aircraft posted by Jitu Patwari was not that of the Prime Minister of India. It's an American Boeing aircraft.
Congress MLA Jitu Patwari tweeted from Rau in Indore, ‘Rail is sold out, what about tea !!! Hey brother! Does the Prime Minister come from the background of tea? When we give him more benefits, he will make India a world leader. Picture of the inside of the Prime Minister's plane. ”
Checking the PAB fact, the Congress MLA's claim was proved wrong. After checking the PIB fact, he wrote in a tweet that a Twitter user posted a picture of the inside of a luxury aircraft and claimed that it was the inside of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's plane. We have verified the information and found this claim baseless. This picture is of a private Dreamline aircraft. This aircraft was built by Boeing. And this is not a picture of the Prime Minister's plane.
