Delhi: An image of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley along with senior leaders from Congress and CPI went viral on social media on Tuesday and raised a certain amount of curiosity.
In the picture, Jaitley is showing something on his mobile to three Opposition leaders, Anand Sharma, Ghulam Nabi Azad of Congress and D Raja of CPI.
As per NDTV, the photo was clicked after an all-party meeting called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi today.
Azad and Sharma is said to have walked out after the meeting and were waiting to speak to the media.
Then Jaitley also reportedly walked out within minutes, followed by Raja.
The report said that all four started talking and Azad appeared to be disagreeing on something and Raja was seen nodding in agreement.
After this the FM pulled out his iPhone 6s, following which all of them closed in and started watching the screen.
Jaitley, seemingly a little later, apparently triumphantly, kept his phone back in the pocket and looked at Azad and Sharma.
Azad was caught nodding while Sharma became thoughtful.
Later, Azad walked to the media podium and said that Congress did not endorse anti-India slogans.
He also said that his party did not support anyone challenging the Indian constitution.
According to NDTV, one of the four leaders later told the TV channel that an argument had started over the fact whether anti-India slogans raised at JNU campus were valid.
Congress leaders did not believe that it had happened, the report says and then to prove his point, Jaitley played the video clip showing slogan raising in the university.
Meanwhile, people on Twitter reacted in the following manner over the image:
