PM Modi’s faux pas in Moscow : Keeps walking as anthem played

INTERESmodiPrime Minister Narendra Modi broke protocol when he continued to walk on while the Indian national anthem played in the background when he arrived in Moscow.

An official who realised the mistake was seen nudging the PM who then stood to attention with his delegation as the anthem played out.

The gaffe has sparked outrage back in India and the Aam Aadmi Party lashed out at the PM claiming he insulted the National Anthem and the country as a whole.

The Prime Minister’s Office however said it was an ‘inadvertent slip’.
