During Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Germany, something happened that is being discussed very aggressively on various news platforms but in a half-baked manner.
This happened when Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and PM Modi were holding a shared press conference. Both ended their speech and after that PM Modi extended his hand to join Merkel, Merkel then went ahead and “seemingly” ignored him.
The incident between Modi and Merkel was imprisoned in cameras and people are giving various reactions to it. Significantly, this has happened with the PM in 2015 too. Internet is swarming with reaction suggesting -Merkel again ignores Modi’s handshake Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel’s video & photograph of rejecting PM Modi’s handshake are becoming very viral on social media.
According to these pictures being viral, Merkel did not join hands with PM Modi and ignored him and went ahead. But what is being said about these pictures being viral is incomplete truth. The complete truth you will be uncovering after watching the video below.
You will see in the video that on extending Modi’s hand, Merkel moves ahead by pointing out to him away from podium and stops one step further. She does this because she wants to be photographed with PM Modi at the position where the two countries flags are clearly visible while posing for international press. Merkel standing near the flag of India and Germany, raises her hand towards Modi and shakes hands with the PM.
PM Modi is on a 4 countries tour, this is his program –
PM Modi’s first visit to the 4-nation tour was to Germany, where he issued a joint statement after meeting with Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and said that I have been welcomed very well in Germany. During this meeting, we talked about many issues between the two nations. The PM also said that India and Germany are made for each other.
