“Enjoyed Seeing Myself Dance”: PM Modi Reacts To Viral Meme

A “dancing” Mamata Banerjee meme considered objectionable by the Bengal Police, was apparently picked by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make a point in the election season. While the Bengal police started a hunt for the creator, PM Modi applauded the “creativity” and said he “enjoyed” seeing himself dance.

“Like all of you, I also enjoyed seeing myself dance. Such creativity in peak poll season is truly a delight!” he posted, retweeting the meme that portrayed him shaking a leg to a popular number.  

The meme on Ms Banerjee, that showed her dancing to her own speech, was met with a strong reaction from the Bengal police.

“You are directed to immediately disclose your identity including name and residence. If the information sought is not revealed, you shall be liable for legal action u/s 42 CrPC,” read a post from the Kolkata Police responding to the tweet.

The reaction on social media was stronger, with most people censoring the police. Many said that PM Modi has not reacted to the many jokes and cartoons and memes on him in this election season.

The meme on PM Modi had a caption that read, “Posting this video cuz I know that ‘THE DICTATOR’ is not going to get me arrested for this”.
