New Delhi (NVI): A morphed picture claims that the Railway Board has made an announcement to start all passenger trains, local trains and passenger special trains from 1 February 2021.
The Fact Check Unit of the Press Information Bureau (PIB) has investigated the claim and found it to be fake and said that Railway Ministry has not made any such announcement.
Debunking the fake news, PIB took to Twitter and wrote in Hindi, “Claim: It is being claimed in the picture that the Railway Board has announced to start all passenger trains, local trains and passenger special trains from 1 February 2021.
#PIBFactCheck : This claim is fake. @RailMinIndia Has not made any such announcement.”
दावा: एक #Morphed तस्वीर में दावा किया जा रहा है कि रेलवे बोर्ड ने 1 फरवरी 2021 से सभी पैसेंजर ट्रेन, लोकल ट्रेन और यात्री स्पेशल ट्रेन चालू करने का ऐलान किया है। #PIBFactCheck: यह दावा फ़र्ज़ी है। @RailMinIndia ने ऐसी कोई घोषणा नहीं की है। pic.twitter.com/TlZNaILj9w
