Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photos hugging world leaders have come into discussion on the internet once again after the photos of awkward hugs with the French president Francois Hollande went viral.
The Indian premier can be seen awkwardly hugging Hollande, an embrace termed by the Washington Post as ‘unusual even by Modi’s standards’.
In the photos, the French president is apparently getting away while Modi touched him on waist moments after the previous hug.
Check out some of the reactions from the folks on the internet and see if you can figure out what’s going on.
