New York/New Delhi, Sept 25: Prime Minister rendra Modi signed what appeared to be an Indian flag evoking sharp criticism from the Congress but the government clarified on Friday that it was only a memento. The controversy erupted after super chef Vikas Khan, who had dished up the fare for the prime minister’s dinner with Fortune 500 CEOs on Thursday, approached Modi with the flag crafted by children of Smile India Foundation to be gifted to President Barack Obama. When Khan told him that he wanted to present it to Obama, Modi signed on it. Modi also praised the chef for the dinner held at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. The story broke after the chef displayed the signed flag to the media. According to the rules governing the tiol flag, putting any inscription on the flag is considered disrespect. (IANS)
