In the video, he can be seen greeting leaders on the stage. He even had a conversation with former Tripura Chief Minister, Manik Sarkar. However, he did not talk to Advani.
After the video went viral on social media, Twitterati started reacting. One of the netizens said, ” One thing I didn’t liked in the video that elder leader like #AdvaniJi is standing with folded hands, @narendramodi ji shud have turned n shud have greeted him, shows arrogance! Not expected frm a leader like #NaMo “. Here are other few reactions of Twitterati.
Isn't it quintessential Bharatiyata to give/show respect to elders (irrespective of whether they deserve it or not – but that's another story)? Yet this PM who swears by it acts so absolutely arrogantly. That was a brutal snub and difficult to watch.

It may be mentioned that Advani, who was deputy Prime Minister in Atal Bihar Vajpayee cabinet failed to get any ministry in Narendra Modi government.
