In a three-day visit to Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated and launched infrastructure projects worth more than Rs 6,000 crore in the Bundelkhand region.

On November 19, BJP MLA Dr Avadhesh Singh posted an image of a dam and claimed that Bundelkhand will get such irrigation projects. He wrote, “Bundelkhand which was traditionally used by politicians for their personal benefits is today witnessing a sea of change.” It’s worth noting the text over the dam’s image reads “Bundelkhand’s gift” (translated from बुंदेलखंड की सौगात).

BJP MLAs Ravindra Nath Tripathi and Suresh Kumar Khanna, BJP member Anil Kumar, and Hindu Yuva Vahini Gujarat in-charge Yogi Devnath also shared the same image.

Alt News performed a reverse image search and found that the image in question was published by Deccan Chronicle in 2014. As per the report, the image shows the Srisailam Dam. This is constructed across the Krishna River in Nagarkurnool district in Telangana and Kurnool district in Andhra Pradesh.

The comparison below shows that both dams are the same.

On November 19, the PM India website stated in a press release that the projects announced by PM Modi include Arjun Sahayak Project, Ratauli Weir Project, Bhaoni Dam Project and Majhgaon-Chilli Sprinkler Project.

Several BJP leaders posted a photo of Srisailam Dam and claimed that it is a gift for Bundelkhand.
