Facepalm: Union Minister Babul Supriyo shares fake Rajkot bus stand photo – not airport, not London, it’s photoshop

Union Minister Babul Supriyo shared an impressive photo of just inaugurated bus stand at Rajkot in Gujarat on Wednesday night.   He gave it a dramatic caption – “This is not an Airport, it's not in London or New York either, it's the new bus stand inaugurated in Rajkot.”  There was a factual error in his post. The photo seems to be just an artist’s conception of the project.

Union Minister Babul Supriyo shared an impressive photo of just inaugurated bus stand at Rajkot in Gujarat on Wednesday night. 

He gave it a dramatic caption – “This is not an Airport, it's not in London or New York either, it's the new bus stand inaugurated in Rajkot.”

There was a factual error in his post. The photo seems to be just an artist’s conception of the project.  

The work on the bus stand was reportedly flagged off just on April 7 and will take sometime to finish. 

Caught on wrong foot, Babul Supriyo smoothly shifted the blame to a friend who had forwarded it without verifying. 

There was not one word on his own responsibility as Minister sharing posts blindly. 

But many on twitter went after the minister trolling him for the lapse. As a user Dinesh Udupa asked: Are you a minister or a fool.
