Who was he waving at? Modi trolled on social media over Dal lake video
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was trolled on social media for “waving at nothing” during his boat-ride in world famous Dal Lake in Srinagar on Sunday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was trolled on social media for "waving at nothing" during his boat-ride in world famous Dal Lake in Srinagar on Sunday.
The Twitterati comprising former Jammu and Kashmir chief ministers as well criticised Modi for what they said waving at nothing in the lake when whole Kashmir was observing shutdown amid a lockdown against his visit.
Former J&K CM Omar Abdullah while sharing a video on Twitter where Modi can be seen waving during boat ride in Dal Lake sarcastically remarked that the camera man has done disservice to PM for not showing the crowd Modi was waving at.
"This camera person has done the Hon PM a huge disservice by not showing all the people furiously waving back because there is no way the PM would be waving at an empty lake," Omar tweeted.
The Modi 'waving' has since become a butt of jokes on social media, especially Twitter.
Naveed Iqbal, a journalist from Srinagar wrote on Twitter: "Not sure who Pradhan Mantri ji could possibly be waving to since Srinagar has been on lockdown since last night and (the) internet snapped."
The ex-CM of J&K and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti too criticized Modi for waving to 'countless imaginary friends' in Kashmir.
Modi was in Kashmir on Sunday on a day-long visit to the state during which the Boulevard road that circles around the Dal lake was shut a day before.
The whole valley was shut in protest on strike called by the Joint Resistance Leadership.
