A photo is going viral that claims that former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda’s car was allowed to the platform of a railway station. What is the reality of the picture?
The viral message said that the car was allowed as he was a VVIP. When we investigated we found that the picture was clicked in 2010. The Fortuner Car was allowed to the platform of Bengaluru City Railway Station.
Deve Gowda’s party JDS had organized a farmers’ rally in Delhi. He had come to see the farmers off. He then took a flight to Delhi and joined them in the national capital.
However, the claim that he was allowed to the platform as he was a VVIP is wrong. He was not well and he took full permission from railways.
