Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Htpunjab&haryana -

Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi was in Gur­daspur on Jan­uary 3 to ad­dress a pub­lic meet­ing. At the rally, when SAD pres­i­dent Sukhbir Singh Badal pre­sented a shawl to wel­come him, Modi put his right hand for­ward for a hand­shake. How­ever, Sukhbir, who was look­ing to­wards the cam­eras, did not no­tice the ges­ture. His wife, Union food pro­cess­ing in­dus­tries min­is­ter Har­sim­rat Kaur Badal, who was also stand­ing there, no­ticed the PM’S ges­ture. She promptly pushed Sukhbir’s arm to­wards Modi for the hand­shake. Her pres­ence of mind was caught on cam­era and a video went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia. The hand­shake also be­came photo of the day.
