Our FactCheck team has found the source article and you can see how cleverly the message has been cropped, so, mischievous handles can defame a noble program like AP Skill Development.

As you can see, the screenshot in question has only one part of the article and also cropped out the person’s name, who gave that quote, In Telugu “Vijay Chaudhary Tripuraneni, Founder, Proteins Hygienic Non-Veg Mart” in Hyderabad.
The initiative to train butchers has been taken up by a private company in Hyderabad, but the handles above have intentionally named AP Skill Development. Many of the above handles will not even take down their posts with such misleading fake information, as they have malicious intentions.
