He can be seen coming out of his aircraft where he was received by Amarinder Singh while Badnore and Harsimrat Kaur were also present. In the actual video, PM Modi can be seen meeting and greeting Amrinder Singh, while exchanging some words. He also greets Harsimrat Kaur, later on.
The full video was also shared by a twitter user named Laliya.
