New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is once again in the line of fire by the netizens a day after he shared pictures of his visit to a school and his interaction with the students for launching Mission Schools of Excellence.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched the ambitious ‘Mission Schools of Excellence’ project in Gandhinagar ahead of the Gujarat Assembly polls. As a part of the launching of the mission Modi had purportedly visited a school in Adalaj in Gujarat and spent time with students and teachers.
PM Modi shared several pictures on his Twitter handle on Wednesday with a caption that read “Some glimpses from the memorable interaction with our youth while launching the Mission Schools of Excellence.”

However, when more pictures of his visit to the school went viral across social media platforms, users had a field day as they pointed out several loopholes in the pictures from what was being touted by the PM and other BJP leaders as a classroom of a school.
Hundreds of users mocked PM Modi and his PR team for what they termed a “PR stunt”. Among the flaws, the users pointed out from the pictures, were a fake window, a tiny classroom that could only accommodate six students, walls of the classroom that looked like it was made of cardboard, and the facial expression of the students.
Members of the Bharatiya Janata Party have hit back at the trolls by posting older pictures of the PM while he interacted with students. However, there has been no clarification on the recently posted photos.
Among those who targeted PM Modi over the propaganda and staging a fake classroom visit, were members of various political parties, senior leaders, and activists.
Here’s what they said:

New Delhi (PTI): The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to consider individual cases seeking acceptance of demonetised currency notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 denominations.
A bench comprising BR Gavai and Vikram Nath, however, allowed the individual petitioners to approach the government with a representation.
The top court directed the government to decide the representation and consider the individual grievances, if made, within a period of 12 weeks.
"After the judgement of the constitution bench, we do not find it will be permissible for us to exercise our jurisdiction under Article 142 of the Constitution in individual cases to accept demonetised currency notes," the bench said.
It also clarified that in the event any of the petitioners are not satisfied with the action by the Union of India, they would be at liberty to approach the high court concerned.
In a majority verdict, the top court had upheld the government's 2016 decision to demonetise the currency notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 denominations.
A five-judge Constitution bench had said the Centre's decision-making process could not have been flawed as there was consultation between the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the Union government.
The court had said the notification dated November 8, 2016, which announced the decision to scrap the high-value currency notes, cannot be said to be unreasonable and struck down on the ground of decision-making process.
