New Delhi: When Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart met on Sunday, they were prepared for requests of a photo-op. There was, however, one request they weren't prepared for — that to 'step down’.

The gaffe at their joint appearance at Hyderabad House in the national capital was triggered by the unfortunate choice of words by the Indian official. Instead of asking the two leaders to step away from dais, he asked them to “step down”. The request made everyone present, including the PM, break into a laugh.

“May I request the two prime ministers to step down,” the official was heard saying, prompting Modi to smile and ask, “step down?” This was enough for the entire room to break into a laughter.
