Claim: Tejaswi Yadav is conferred with the Youngest political leader award in London.

Fact: The image is actually of Tejaswi’s interaction with ICE members in London back in 2016 when he was the Deputy CM of Bihar. He shared those images on his social media accounts. Also, we could not find any news articles saying Tejaswi Yadav receiving Young Political leader award in London. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

Reverse image search of the photo in the post led us to a 2016 tweet by Tejaswi Yadav where he shared similar pictures to the one in the post. According to the tweet, this image is from his London visit where he attended a knowledge sharing session with ICE members back in 2016 when he was the Deputy CM of Bihar.

Tejaswi Yadav shared the transcripts of his speech along with another image of his interaction with ICE back in 2016 on his official Facebook account which can be seen here. Also, we could not find any news articles about Tejaswi Yadav receiving Young Political leader award in London. With all this, we can conclude that the claim made in the post is not true. However, according to a news article Tejaswi Yadav is the youngest CM candidate in India. If voted to power, Tejaswi Yadav (31 years) would become the youngest CM in India.

In the light of the ongoing Bihar elections, posts like these are being shared across social media platforms with misleading claims.

To sum it up, Tejaswi Yadav did not receive any award in London for being the youngest political leader.

Share.
