Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Sikkim to inaugurate the state's first airport at Pakyong on Monday. He has always been famous for his selfies and has proved how well he knows to pose for a photo but this time he has turned his role as a photographer.
On the way to Sikkim, Modi tried his hands at photography and captured some beautiful pictures of the northeastern state. He took to Twitter and showed off his photography skills by sharing four aerial pictures of Sikkim.
“Serene and splendid! Clicked these pictures on the way to Sikkim. Enchanting and incredible! #IncredibleIndia,” Modi tweeted.
During the inauguration of the airport, Modi said the greenfield airport would not just improve connectivity with the landlocked and border state of Sikkim but also boost tourism and other economic activities in the state.
(A greenfield airport is an aviation facility which has been commissioned and constructed from scratch without remodelling or renovating an existing structure.)
The prime minister, who began his address in Nepali, said that the people of Sikkim were as beautiful as the natural beauty of the tiny Himalayan state. He said that he could not resist taking photographs and the cool breeze and the sunrise behind the mountains mesmerised him.
