Alert PM Narendra Modi saves media lensmen from big mishap in Gujarat
The surveillance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the opening of a water project near here Tuesday saved the lives of several cameras and photographers, said Deputy Minister Nitin Patel of Gujarat.
Speaking of a function here after Modi had inaugurated Sauni’s ambitious project, Patel said the prime minister simply observed the flow of water at the Aji-3 dam site after pushing a button to start the dam’s exit .
“Suddenly he realized that several cameras and photographers were standing on the downstream side. The strong flow of water released some time ago was rushing towards them and could eliminate,” Patel said.
Busy taking pictures of the event, cameramen and photographers seemed unconscious. But, applauding with his hands and other movements, the prime minister alerted and escaped in time.
