PM Modi's 94-minute-long mammoth speech on Independence Day put many politicians to sleep
Several politicians were caught on camera napping during PM Narendra Modi's 94-minute-long mammoth speech at the Red Fort today morning.

PM Modi broke his own record of last year of delivering the longest Independence Day speech ever. Last year he had broken the record of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in this regard.

Cutting across party lines, the list of nappers included senior BJP leaders Arun Jaitley, Manohar Parrikar and Ananth Kumar, and also their bete noir, chief minister of Delhi and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal.

It is however unclear whether they were actually sleeping or deeply engrossed in what PM Modi was saying.

PM Modi speech was an elaborate one and filled with statistics and facts about the achievements of his government. The speech also had a special section on shaming Pakistan, which he left for the end.

Aam Aadmi Party's senior politician Manish Sisodia took a jibe at PM Modi by tweeting that "it seems that the PM's speech was quite boring".
