PM Narendra Modi, Sheikh Hasina 'Step Down', He Said. Everyone Laughed

PM Narendra Modi and Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina addressed a joint briefing in Delhi

New Delhi:  It was a busy morning for PM Narendra Modi and his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina as they signed 22 agreements, including a $500 million line of credit to Dhaka for purchase of military hardware. India also extended another 4.5 billion dollars in a line of credit to Bangladesh for infrastructure projects. But it wasn't all work for the two leaders as they shared a light moment during the joint briefing.

While briefing media at capital's Hyderabad House, the two leaders were asked to 'step down' by an official. But it's not what you think.

As the two leaders finished signing pacts between the two countries, the presenter asked them to 'step down'. "I now request the two Prime Ministers to step down," he said. While he meant to ask them to come off the stage, the room erupted with laughter including the leaders who laughed off the presenter's honest mistake.
