Prime Minister Narendra Modi was fact-checked on Twitter after claiming in an interview to the Hindi News Channel, News Nation, that he had used a digital camera to click LK Advani's picture in the late 1980s.

In the same video that went viral on Sunday, he also claimed that he had used an iPad like tablet with a stylus in the early 1990s.

The wild claims made by the Prime Minister got him quite a lot of attention. People on Twitter also mocked his statements by using the #CloudyModi, which is trending on the social media website. 

Congress Spokesperson Sanjay Jha tweeted, "That #Modi lies is a given. That he does so brazenly, repeatedly and publicly is symptomatic of a visceral arrogance that even his lies will be trusted. It is an acute form of megalomania, a serious affliction.
 

On the other hand, some people also blamed the journalists for not cross-questioning him during the interview.

This claim by the Prime Minister was made during the same interview which gave rise to 'Cloud Theory' that went viral on social media platforms.
