PM Modi says he used digital camera, E-mail in 1988, and social media is having none of it, ‘Cloud Theory’, Modi Faces Attack. The first digital camera, the social media users pointed out, was sold by Nikon in 1987 and commercial emails were introduced in 1990-95.
PM Narendra Modi is once again at the centre of a controversy after he claimed using a digital camera and e-mail services years before they were even available. This unnoticed part of his interview went on viral on social media with twitterites mocking the Prime Minister for his claims while the politicians used them to take a swipe at Modi.
After being trolled for his "cloud theory" on the Balakot air strike, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday came under attack. The wild claims made by the Prime Minister got him quite a lot of attention. People on Twitter also mocked his statements by using the #CloudyModi, which is trending on the social media website.
The first digital camera, the social media users pointed out, was sold by Nikon in 1987 and commercial emails were introduced in 1990-95. The interview was broadcasted on Saturday. In the same interview, PM Modi claimed that he advised the Indian Air Force to use clouds to hide from Pakistan's radars during the Balakot air strikes.
Internet in India was made publicly available in 1995 by VSNL but Modi was sending emails in 1987
Oh, and he was sooo poor that he owned a digital camera in 1987; most of the households purchased it 20 yrs later
