Lalu Fakes Photo for Desh Bachao Rally
Fake it like Lalu
Rashtriya Janata Dal chief, Lalu Prasad Yadav has become the hot topic ever since he posted a picture of his Desh Bachao rally on his official twitter handle. The picture of his rally has drawn a lot of flack as the pictures posted by him and those by ANI were completely different.
What really caused the flack? It seems like Lalu Yadav had the picture of his BJP Bhagao, Desh Bachao rally morphed meaning the picture made it look like hundreds and thousands of people attended his rally to show him support whilst ANI posted an actual picture of the same event. The comparison between the two was done by IBTL Handle.

Twitter users also took the opportunity to oust him on the fact that all the people in the picture appeared to be wearing the same clothes (A dress code perhaps?)
While some were poking fun at his guts to digitally alter an image, others were poking fun at the fact that every person wore the same clothes. Some even joked that he failed at getting 2000 people to his rally thus photo shopped the 2000 Rupee note in the image. Other poked fun that people from other countries like Nigeria also came to support his rally. In short, it was a great day for Twittter users as it was an unpleasant day for the RJD chief viz Lalu Prasad Yadav Comedy Day.
Only haters will say this is Photoshop.

Remember Trump’s inauguration picture? Do you also remember the fuss behind it? Trump posted a picture where almost a million people attended his inauguration whilst the media showed another picture. Trump felt the media was showing a false image and categorized it as ‘fake news’ and now it seems like RJD chief, Lalu Prasad also felt the need to follow the steps of trump.
Maybe the RJD chief and his team will learn that today’s generation does not fall for morphed images anymore. We are smart enough to distinguish real from fake. What you see isn’t always the truth but at least the nation and BJP, in particular, have something to laugh about.
