Even a naive person can find difference between BBC and BBC News point logo, but such social media influencers has seen spreading fake propaganda many time. But as the news started spreading, users began putting the real BBC logo, giving people the impression that BBC had indeed conducted the survey.
BBC India’s Geeta Pandey on Monday posted a tweet, corroborating that the survey indeed was fake as the BBC doesn’t do such stories.
