Fact Check: Behind the scenes photos of PM Modi plogging on Tamil Nadu beach are false

A collage of four pictures is going viral on social media with false claims that they are activities that took place behind the scenes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent video of cleaning the Mamallapuram beach in Tamil Nadu.

In the viral pictures, crew members can be seen scanning the beach, unloading wastes and preparing the camera off the shore respectively. In the fourth image, PM Modi can be seen plogging on the Mamallapuram beach.

The three images are being shared to claim that the prime minister’s team had strategized in placing the waste and scanned the area. An entire crew of the camera was ready to film the cleaning drive.

Check out the post:

Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping were in the coastal town of Mamallapuram earlier this week to kickstart Jinping’s two-day India visit. PM Modi shared a three-minute-long video of him picking up litter from the Mamallapuram beach during his morning jogging session on Friday. Plogging, which combines jogging with picking up litter, originated in Sweden.

Here’s the video:

However, the truth is two out of the three images are old and unrelated.

The first image, where an entire filming crew can be seen, is originally from West Sands Beach, St Andrews, Scotland. It is part of the Fife Tayside region, which is a popular shooting location of Holywood films

The second image of a bomb squad scanning a beach for landmines is originally from Kozhikode, Kerala. The photo was taken in April this year, during Narendra Modi’s election campaign in the area. The image was used in the Hindu’s report titled “BJP gears up for a show of strength ahead of Modi visit.
