G20 special dinner: PIB Fact Check refutes media reports of business leaders' G20 dinner invitation
New Delhi, September 8: Reports in the media suggesting that prominent business leaders have received invitations to attend the G20 'Special Dinner' at the main venue, Bharat Mandapam, have been deemed "misleading" by PIB Fact Check, a government agency responsible for debunking false information related to government affairs.
PIB Fact Check explicitly stated, "No business leaders have been extended invitations to the dinner (on Saturday)."
PIB Fact Check made this clarification on its X timeline, accompanied by evidence from a media report making such a claim.
