A "very special friend" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi surprised him in the Parliament today.
In a picture posted on PM Modi's Instagram profile, a baby can be seen sitting comfortably in his lap. The prime minister is also playfully engrossed with the child, with chocolates placed on the table.
Here's what his Instagram post read: "A very special friend came to meet me in Parliament today."
Even though Modi didn't specify any further details, his love for children knows no bounds. And of course, is known to all.
Earlier this year, Modi posted a video of his brief interlude on the Delhi Metro with a toddler on his way to an event in the capital. He was seen in a playful exchange with the little boy sitting in his father's lap.
On several occasions earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shown affection towards children even it meant breaking protocols at times.
These pictures are from the Independence Day celebrations in 2017 when Modi mingled with school students who had come to take part in the event.
