Best photos of Narendra Modi that prove he is the ultimate king of selfies

Prime Minister Narendra Modi knows the real power of a selfie. Not one to leave any opportunity untapped, he even clicked a selfie with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

The Wall Street Journal said that the photograph could be the "most powerful selfie in history." The May 2014 elections which bought the Narendra Modi government to power was dubbed "India's first social media election" too.

He even created a minor scandal when he clicked a selfie with a lotus, the symbol for his party BJP, and tweeted it. This selfie broke the code of conduct as it showed a political symbol.

Modi's social media team promoted a #selfiewithModi hashtag on Twitter and set up "selfie booths" across the country, which allowed the public to take a selfie with him. Not only political leaders, Modi is also famous for clicking selfies with Bollywood and Hollywood celebrities. Modi actually broke the internet when the BJP mentioned that it has already collected over 70,000 pictures of people across Delhi, posing with the PM.

This is perhaps Modi's favourite picture
