Date:

On June 9, 2024, during the swearing-in ceremony, Thrissur’s lone BJP MP Suresh Gopi took oath as a Minister of State. Within a day, the social media was abuzz with claims that the actor-turned-politician had decided to resign.

The rumours spread after Suresh Gopi made surprising remarks to the media, expressing his hope to be relieved of his ministerial duties soon, so he could complete some pending film commitments he had signed earlier.

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the claim, and found it to be false.

With a keyword search, the NM team found that Suresh Gopi has addressed the rumours through his personal social media accounts on Facebook and X, refuting the claims.

Gopi has debunked the rumours, saying: “Some media platforms are spreading false news about my resignation from the Modi Government’s Council of Ministers. This is completely untrue. I take great pride in serving in the Council of Ministers under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and representing the people of Kerala. We are dedicated to Kerala’s development and prosperity under PM Modi’s guidance.”

Additionally, several media organisations, including Deccan Chronicles, India Today and Mint, dated June 10, 2024, have also covered this statement.

According to a report by Hindustan Times, dated June 11, in an interview with ANI, Gopi says, “My films are definitely one of my priorities. I think I will be given the space… My Prime Minister and Home Minister will find a method by which I will not ditch my passion.”

Hence, it is evident that the rumours about him resigning as the Minister of State are baseless.
