Fact Check:

NewsMeter found that the claim that the image is recent is FALSE as it has been on the Internet since 2019.

We performed a reverse image search and found an article by the Deccan Herald that had carried the same image. However, the article is dated 2019.

The image was attributed to the news agency PTI and was taken on 26 November 2019 during the state Assembly session in Chandigarh.

Since the image has been on the Internet since 2019, it is evident that the claim that it is related to the recent trust vote in the Haryana Assembly is FALSE.
