Modi ‘Wave’: With No Public Around, PM Modi Pretend Waves for Cameras, Leaves Social Media in Splits
"Who is he waving to, Aquaman?” asked one user.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi may be a superhuman to his fans and followers, but he does have one extraordinarily human trait — a weakness for the camera. For long it has been a widely made joke that whenever a camera clicks in his direction, one can be sure PM Modi will be looking into it.
This time, he did one better. As he took a boat ride, in Jammu and Kashmir’s Dal Lake, Modi waved on camera at seemingly no one.
But as one Twitter user pointed out, “Not sure who Pradhan Mantri ji could possibly be waving to since Srinagar has been on lockdown since last night and internet snapped.”

This Modi ‘wave’, unlike the 2014 one, evoked more laughter and criticism than the public’s trust. Modi was called a narcissist on Twitter.
Not sure who pradhan mantri ji could possibly be waving to, since Srinagar has been on lock down since last night and internet snapped. All for a couple hours of PM's visit. https://t.co/RFa9MLa2ch
