Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s love for the camera was trolled on Monday after he waved apparently “at nothing” while on a visit to Dal Lake. The Twitterati comprising former Jammu and Kashmir chief ministers as well criticised Modi for what they said waving at nothing in the lake when whole Kashmir was observing shutdown amid a lockdown against his visit.
Indian news agency ANI on Sunday afternoon shared on Twitter a video of Modi travelling in a navy-blue motor boat on the Dal Lake. In the midst of the lake, with no people or fellow travellers around, Modi waved in different directions from the boat, as if huge crowds had thronged to see him.
People Left Puzzled and They made fun of PM Modi waving at an empty Dal Lake amid shutdown
Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti, along with other opposition leaders, took a swipe at the prime minister for waving at “imaginary friends in Kashmir” during the boat ride.
For the those who are asking , the 👋 is for BJPs countless imaginary ‘friends’ in Kashmir. https://t.co/l0YPq2oiVy

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said “there is no way the PM would be waving at an empty lake.”
This camera person has done the Hon PM a huge disservice by not showing all the people furiously waving back because there is no way the PM would be waving at an empty lake. https://t.co/YJoEfX8DJ3

Funny thing is, he’s waving his hand in a way to potray there are people, when, as a matter of fact, dal lake is enormously huge, and you cannot see who’s on the banks. Secondly, people weren’t allowed to go there, roads were sealed. Thirdly, there was only security & none. 🤦♂️.
