Moscow: This can be termed as a major political faux pas wherein Prime Minister Narendra Modi kept on walking while the Indian national anthem was playing in the background after his arrival in Moscow. An official had to stop him mid-way from proceeding further ahead after which the delegation along with the PM, stood in attention to the National anthem.
Meanwhile, social networking sites here in India poured with feeds of outrage. The Congress and the Aam Aadmi party hit out on the PM asserting that he had insulted the National anthem and in turn the nation. The Prime Ministers Office however retaliated stating that it was just an ‘inadvertent slip’.
