In Shimla, relished coffee at the Indian Coffee House and reminisced old days. The coffee tastes as good as it did two decades ago, when I would frequent Himachal for party work. pic.twitter.com/XOYzlpLc43- Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) December 27, 2017
Seen in a brown Himachali cap and a waistcoat, the Prime Minister seemed unfazed by the surging crowd at Shimla's busiest spot. He had stopped on his way to the helipad. For a part of the drive, he stood on the footboard and waved at people lining the road.
During an earlier visit, he had shared that he spent hours at the Coffee House with his journalist friends but "never paid" for the coffee. He remarked that his journalist friends used to pick up the tab.
"Sitting at the Indian Coffee House along with my journalist friends, I used to get an insight into the state's political developments," said PM Modi, who was the BJP's in-charge of Himachal Pradesh from 1994 and 2002.
PM Modi was last floored by coffee during a visit to Andhra Pradesh last year. A media report describes his experience with Araku coffee at a maritime exhibition in Vishakhapatnam.
