News Verification: Some users are mistaking this picture as recent, which is causing confusion in social media. Ayupp fact check team found that the picture of the two along with Ambika Soni is not from recent times. The picture is misleading as Captain Amarinder Singh is not more with these leaders now. He has left the Punjab government as Chief Minister.

This picture is from April 2016. It was uploaded by Charanjit Singh Channi himself on his account at that time.
