New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi surprise visit to Nimmoo in Leh to interact with soldiers, drew quick reactions on Twitter.

The Prime Minister tweeted his speech to the troops.

BJP’s official handle tweeted updates from his speech.

BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi is impressed by ‘leadership from the front.’

There’s some approval from the Opposition too. Here’s Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi.

However, it seems there’s no pleasing Congress.

Former Lt. General Anil Duhoon sees Modi’s visit as another PR stunt.

Back in the capital, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visits the home of Dr Aseem Gupta, who died of coronavirus, while working with patients at the LNJP hospital.

Congress’ Priyanka Gandhi is horrified by the prevailing law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh after eight policemen died in an ambush. Wonder if her reported relocation to Lucknow will help.

If only scientists and doctors shared the same confidence as BJP’s Amit Malviya on the development of the Covid-19 vaccine by 15 August as ICMR’s letter mandates companies involved in the process.

Here’s a meta joke for you. Sorry not sorry.

The Border Security Force’s poem on guarding India’s borders will give you goosebumps.

Onto a heartfelt letter to TikTok, now banned in India.

Just like your physics textbook, this video will leave you feeling confused.

US President Donald Trump seems pretty confident about the Covid situation in the country. Guess he hasn’t heard about the Alabama coronavirus parties yet.

Today, Bollywood lost one of its most dynamic choreographers, Saroj Khan. Here, the film industry’s favourite dancer Madhuri Dixit recalling some good times and Shahrukh Khan with salaams to his first guru in Bollywood.
