Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam adds fake food in Narendra Modi’s meal

Text Size:

The image, retweeted over 400 times, showing a large platter in front of Modi is morphed to include fake food.

New Delhi: Mumbai Congress Committee president Sanjay Nirupam Thursday shared an image on Twitter trolling Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In the image, the prime minister can be seen eating food with a large variety to choose from.

On being asked about the morphed image, Nirupam told ThePrint, “I know it’s a morphed image, I just shared it for fun, that is it.”

The caption with the tweeted image said, “Na Khaoonga Na Khaane Doonga.” Literally translated, it means ‘won’t eat and won’t let anyone else eat either.’ The phrase was one of Modi’s slogans against corruption during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections campaign.

The image was retweeted over 400 times and was liked by over 1,500 accounts.

However, the picture tweeted by the former Member of Parliament is actually morphed. The food served, as seen in the image, was not what was on the table in front of Modi.

The original picture was clicked by Gujarat photographer Dilip Thakar during Modi’s tenure as the state chief minister. According to a 2014 Dainik Bhaskar report, the picture was part of Thakar’s rare collection of Modi’s pictures. The photos in the original report about the collection have since been deleted.
