Official Says, I Request Prime Ministers to Step Down, Wait! What?

On Day 2 of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to India, she and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi were scheduled to give a joint statement to the press. After the exchange of MoUs, an official requested the two Prime Ministers to ‘step down’.

It took sometime for both the leaders and other dignitaries present in the room to realise the official’s faux pas, but once they did, everyone burst into laughter including PM Modi and PM Hasina. It had been a very busy day for both the leaders, but this honest mistake from the official surely lightened their mood and cheered their spirit.
