A photo of Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray has gone viral on social media in which he is watching news channel Republic TV. Some mischievous people used the image to mock Uddhav for watching the news channel with whom his government has been at loggerheads since the suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
The image is however fake and it is clear that it was morphed just to take a jibe at the Thackeray scion.

Republic TV and its editor-in-chief have been mounting attacks on Uddhav government for allegedly protecting the perpetrators who, according to the channel, 'killed' Sushant.
Recently, Mumbai Police Commissioner Paramvir Singh addressed a press conference and named three channels. including Republic TV, and claimed that they are involved in Television Rating Point (TRP) scam.
