It won’t be wrong to say that the current year, till now, has completely been against India in terms of reputation. From losing several vintage fighter jets to Pakistan to both nuclear-armed countries coming on the verge of war, the Indian government only knows the ploy. Well, in another episode of ‘Prime Ministers facing the floor’, Narendra Modi stumbled on Ganga Ghat’s steps earlier today.
India left embarrassed after PM Narendra Modi stumbled and slipped on Ganga Ghat’s steps!
Apparently, after seeing the Indian PM embarrassing his country on several international platforms, the ‘fall’ isn’t new. However, back in October, Narendra Modi’s ‘plogging’ became the center of online trolling and the reactions were downright hilarious. Earlier today, PM Narendra Modi embarrassed India yet again after he stumbled and fell on Ganga Ghat’s steps during Kanpur visit.
Check out the ‘falling’ video of PM Narendra Modi!

Hopefully, some ghost from Pakistan hadn’t push Narendra Modi or maybe the blame game is about to start? Anyways, the unfortunate incident took place during PM Modi’s review tour of Namami Gange project in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. While stepping up on the staircase of Ganga Ghat, Narendra Modi slipped on his way and was then picked by security officials along with him.
