BJP MLA disputes photo with inverted flag

Panaji A photograph of a BJP legislator greeting his supporters with an inverted national flag in the backdrop went viral on Monday even as the MLA, Subhash Phaldesai, claims that the image was photoshopped by “mischievous elements”.

The photograph went viral on the social media, especially on Whatsapp, after Independence Day celebrations in the state.

“I have received many calls about it. The photo was taken after the Independence Day function in Sanguem and merged with another photo of the inverted flag by mischievous elements,” Phaldesai told IANS.

“This is a case of two photos being merged and photoshopped together,” he said.
