PM Modi arrived on Monday in the country on the first leg of his six-day, four-nation tour of Germany, Spain, Russia and France aimed at boosting bilateral economic engagement with them and inviting more investment for India’s transformation.
Priyanka posted another photo of her with Modi, where she’s sitting cross-legged in short printed dress, on Instagram.
Her message said, “Was such a lovely coincidence to be in #berlin?? at the same time as the Prime Minister. Thank you @narendramodi Sir for taking the time from your packed schedule to meet me this morning. ??”
The photo on Instagram became controversial as many Modi supporters took offence to Priyanka sitting in a ‘disrespectful’ manner in front of the prime minister. However, there were many who came to her defence as well.
Here’s an example of some of the reactions;
