A collage of two photos is being shared widely on social media with a claim that while Odisha CM has greeted Modi with a namaskar upon his arrival at Bhubaneswar airport, Mamata Banerjee was arrogant to greet Modi upon his arrival at Kolkata airport. Modi visited the cyclone-hit states West Bengal and Odisha to review the situation. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
