Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday clarified that the government has not started any such campaign and further said that ‘it seems like mischief to drag him into controversies’.
In a series of tweets, PM Modi said: “It has been brought to my attention that some people are running a campaign that to honour Modi stand for 5 minutes. At first glance, it seems like mischief to drag Modi into controversies.”
