Kerala Floods: BJP ministers did not donate Rs 25 crores cheque


In the wake of the deadly Kerala floods, a picture is making rounds on social media complimenting with a claim that “BJP ministers and MPs donate for Kerala, don’t say that you have not received anything.”

A Facebook user, Sreekumar Sreedharan Nair, shared the image of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan accepting a Rs 25 crore cheque. He is surrounded by several people, including BJP MP V. Muraleedharan and Alphons Kannanthanam, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Tourism.

At the time of reporting, the post had been shared by over 11,000 users.

The claims in the above post are fake as the Rs 25 crore cheque was not donated by BJP ministers, but central petroleum public sector companies on August 21.

Since the cheque was presented to the Kerala CM by BJP MPs, they have been photographed together. This has assisted the narrative floating on social media that it is BJP MPs who have donated this sum to the flood-ravaged state.
