Viral Ad Campaign On Election In The Name Of Amul Is Fake

Claim

The viral image shows Amul’s ad campaign on polling. An X user @SHEKARSUSHEEL posted the viral image and wrote, “Very topical , as always Jiyo Amul. The true taste of India”. (Archive Link)

Fact

An investigation shows us that Amul disowned the advertisement and called it Fake on May 6, 2024. Taking their X handle India’s largest dairy products manufacturing company issued a notice and wrote, “We wish to inform you a fake message featuring the Amul Girl is being shared on WhatsApp and social media. This advertisement has not been created by Amul. In the said post, the name of the creator of this fake advertisement is mentioned as “p k anil”, against whom Amul will take legal action. Amul strongly urges all voters to vote in the ongoing elections and strengthen our democracy. We also request you to kindly share this fake advertisement alert with those who have shared the fake message with you..”

Conclusion

Thus it is clear that the advertisement spread on social media purportedly in the name of Amul is Fake.

Result: False
