Sundar Pichai didn’t post this Facebook post on Indian politics; here’s the truth


A picture of a Facebook post, attributed to Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, has surfaced on the internet.

The text on the picture read: “A politician can fight elections from two seats, But you can’t vote from two places. If you are in jail then you can’t vote. But a politician can fight Elections while in jail. If you have ever been in jail then you can never get a Govt job, But a Politician could have been in jail any number of times and then also he can become PM or President.
You have to be a graduate to get any ordinary job in a bank. But if a politician I illiterate still he can become India’s finance minister. I feel that this system needs to be changed, then support by spreading this message.”

At the time of filing this report, the above post was shared by over 37,000 people on Facebook.


When we fact-checked the viral post, we found that it was FAKE as Sundar Pichai never made the above statement.

Firstly, it is a screenshot of a Facebook post and Sundar Pichai doesn’t have a verified page on Facebook.

Moreover, we further noticed that the spelling of Google CEO’s name was is also wrong in the viral screenshot. His name is SUNDAR PICHAR, not SUNDER PICHAI.

Hence, this proves that the viral post attributed to Sundar Pichai is FAKE.
