This poster about an upcoming BSP government announcement in Lucknow metro is not true
Following the upcoming election in UP, a photo through a post is widely shared on social media claiming it to be the poster for the next BSP government in Lucknow metro. Let’s check the facts of the claim made in the message.
Claim: Photo of the poster of the next BSP government in Lucknow metro.
Do: The BSP poster on the photo was made from a billboard model available on the internet. BSP office and Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) Managing Director Shri Kumar Keshav confirmed to Aaj Tak that there is no such poster in Lucknow Metro. Therefore, the claim made in the message is FALSE.
When the reverse image search is performed on the photo, similar photos are found on the Behance website (here and here). However, the billboards do not mention the Bahujan Samaj party. There are many such billboards with images of different brands on the website (here and here). Behance is an Adobe-owned platform for displaying creative work from around the world.
Another website had this “Curved Subway Billboard” as a template that could be edited to include any image you wanted.
We found no information online whether such billboards of Bahujan Samaj party advertisements were displayed in Lucknow metro. When a similar claim about BSP’s Lucknow Metro poster went viral earlier, Aaj Tak contacted BSP’s office and Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) Managing Director Shri Kumar Keshav, who denied the existence of such a poster in the Lucknow metro.
To sum it up, this poster about an upcoming BSP government advert in Lucknow metro is not true.
