At the wedding reception of Union minister Pralhad Joshi’s daughter Arpita on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a short appearance during which he gave the family a pleasant surprise with a warm gesture. On reaching the venue, the Prime Minister met the bride and bridegroom and started talking to them, with his back to the photographers and videographers who were keen to grab a good moment. When the family requested for a photo, the Prime Minister pulled in Joshi’s younger daughter, who was otherwise not prominently visible, and made her stand in the front. He left the venue in 15 minutes.

Calling Out

CUSTOMERS FACING issues with their telecom companies is common. Turns out India’s Principal Economic Adviser Sanjeev Sanyal is also not immune to it. Sanyal took to Twitter on Tuesday to complain about his experience with the telecom company from which he recently ported out. He termed it “harrasment”. But unlike other users, Sanyal said he would first get a sense of the problem and whether it is a common issue faced by all, before taking the complaint to telecom regulator TRAI.
