New Delhi: After the spectacular parade of the 70th Republic Day of India on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke security protocol to walk up to the crowds to greet them.
PM Modi, dressed in a traditional kurta, pyjama and jacket and sporting a yellow and red turban, walked the length of the VIP enclosure, waving to the crowds with people chanting Modi…Modi.
PM Modi started his walk with his securitymen after seeing off the Chief Guest, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and President Ram Nath Kovind.
This was not the first time the PM Modi did the similar gesture. After last year’s Independence Day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort, he had walked over to meet school children who had come for the occasion.
