Hyderabad: An image of a signboard prohibiting the entry of BJP workers is viral on social media.
"BJP members are not allowed to enter Jagdishpur village in Bihar's Bhojpur," reads the English translation of the signboard
The board also mentions that if any BJP member tries to enter the village, his legs will be broken.
The claim is misleading.
NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search which directed to a report by the Deccan Herald. The report was titled: "BJP members are not allowed inside, says a board outside Greater Noida village."
The report stated that the village in Greater Noida, which was adopted by Union Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma, has put up a board at the entrance, which said: "BJP members are not allowed inside".
The board was put up on October 28 after officials from the local administration and employees of a realty group allegedly destroyed a farmer's crop.
We found the original picture which was published by the Deccan Herald. We then found that the concrete board was morphed.
It is therefore evident that the viral image is misleading. The concrete board is morphed. Plus it is not from Bihar but UP.
