The tweet immediately saw more than 30 retweets and comments on Doordarshan's inefficiency. Here's the real picture, for the curious ones.

What happened was basic human error. It could happen to anyone and we just want to say we are with you. (Obviously) DD immediately responded and asked people not to misinterpret news.  @nistula @RaghunathJoshi Dear followers there has been an error. Story has been put with correct picture again.Kindly don't misinterpre news — Doordarshan News (@DDNewsLive) December 24, 2014 Tweet
