Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Bengaluru on Friday for the inauguration of the new Boeing India Engineering & Technology Center (BIETC) campus. After PM Modi inaugurated the state-of-the-art facility built at a cost of Rs 1,600 crore on a 43-acre site, he was delivering his speech, when he showcased his funny bone.
As the Prime Minister was recounting his government's achievements and stressed about the country having a stable government under his leadership, those in attendance started chanting 'Modi Modi'. PM Modi, looking at Siddharamaiah who was seated on the stage with other dignitaries, told him, "Mukhyamantriji Aisa Hota Rehta Hai (Chief Minister, this keeps happening)."
All that the Karnataka CM could do on PM Modi's statement was to smile.
