When we look closely and used Google Reverse Image Search, it revealed that the viral picture is morphed and Panneerselvam did not down to PM Modi.
The above picture is the original picture when Panneerselvam met PM Modi in Delhi on October 12th, 2017.
Though O Panneerselvam bowed down, it was not in front of PM Modi. He bowed down to former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa.
The second picture is Panneerselvam’s original picture of bowing down:
