Sudden dust storm briefly interrupts PM's speech

Press Trust of India  |  Jhunjhunu 

Sudden change in weather today created a brief interruption in Narendra Modi's public meeting here and even uprooted a tent set up for the programme.

As Modi was addressing the public, a mild but sudden dust storm occurred.

An unfazed prime minister, however, was quick to judge the situation as he asked the gathering to hold the poles erected at the venue tightly so that the tents don't come down.

However, one of the tents got uprooted and a TV screen installed at the venue also fell though no one was injured.

Modi was in Jhunjhunu to launch the and to expand 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' campaign to more areas.
