As 2019 General Election dates and party strategies continue to unfold, all the political parties are giving their best on social media to reach out to the voters and non-voters with a mission to influence them to vote for their party.
But as we say everything that you see over social media is not true! And especially when you’re a part of worlds’ biggest democracy, you need to be more careful while casting your vote.
Political parties and their supporters, fan pages with thousands of followers are opting for fake news, morphed images on photoshop, false statement, doctored videos to influence the voters. No matter how social sites like facebook and twitter trying to keep their platform secure and transparent during the entire election process, still the propaganda continues.
While most of the time, we’ve seen such posts from the right wing & left wing pages, but this time BJD jumped into the competition.
A Biju Janata Dal fan page named ‘We Love BJD’ has shared a video claiming that international media is praising the fast growth of Odisha and it’s all because of the Naveen Patnaik govt. and his work.
Here’s the video!
After doing a fact check and verifying the video, we found out that the video is everything but original. Neither there’s any international news channel praised Odisha nor the govt. The video has been shared 4700 times with more than 1.2 lakh views.
And the video has been made through a freelancer site fiverr which takes a minimum of 20 Americal Dollars to make such kind of videos with graphics with help of the voiceoverpete, which we see as a news reader.
If you come across any news or information, which you think is not genuine then let us know via mail. This election, don’t get influenced by social media and get your facts correct before sharing anything.
