Hyderabad: Social media are sharing images of purported Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.

The images were also shared by CPCI founder and BJP Maharashtra member Pravin Alai.

Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search of both pictures.

Picture 1: While performing the Reverse image search of the first picture, we found the image was of Yamuna Expressway. This picture was published on many websites.

We found a similar image on the website `housing.com'

A report by Saur Energy published on January 04, 2017, had posted the same image for the report titled 'Yamuna Expressway Authority plans to set up Solar Plant on 100 Hectares of Unused Land'.

We then found a report by Zee business published on July 09, 2021 titled: 'Why Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) area is set to emerge as a major industrial hub of India'.

Picture 2: The viral image itself mentions a bridge constructed over Narmada River, Bharuch. However, in the caption, they said it is Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.

We performed a keyword search for the second picture.

We found a YouTube video that was posted on October 28, 2017. The description of the video stated that the new Narmada Bridge is constructed at Bharuch, India.

We then found a report by India.com published on March 7, 2017 titled India's longest cable-bridge in Bharuch inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi; all you need to know about the 1.4 km bridge

It is therefore evident that the claim is False. None of the images are related to Delhi Mumbai Expressway.
