When BOOM investigated this video, the truth turned out to be something else. Actually, PM Modi went to Takht Shri Patna Sahib Gurdwara on 13 May 2024. During this time, he was serving kheer to the people in the langar wearing a turban. In such a situation, the claim on social media about serving food in empty utensils is just a lie.
