The Prime Ministers of India and Bangladesh shared hearty guffaws this morning as the MC at their joint briefing requested both of them to "step down", Times of India reports.
At a joint briefing following a bilateral meeting during which they agreed on 22 MOUs , Narendra Modi and Bangladesh's Sheikh Hasina did a ceremonial signing on stage in front of the press. After that, it was time for the two leaders to step off the elevated podium, so each could make their respective statements.
"May I request the two Prime Ministers to now please step down," he said.
After just a beat, Modi started smiling and then outright laughing.He was joined by Hasina who also couldn't contain herself. They laughed like this for a whole minute.
