PM Modi, in an amicable gesture, rested his hand on Senator Cornyn’s shoulder and apologised to the senator’s wife, who was celebrating her birthday on Sunday.
“I would like to say sorry because today is your birthday and your great life partner is with me so naturally, you must be jealous today,” Prime Minister Modi said. “Wish you all the best, wish you a happy life and very prosperous peaceful future for you. All the best,” he added.
Cornyn, who is a senator from Texas, was among a number of prominent Republican and Democratic lawmakers who attended the mega “Howdy Modi!” event in Houston on Sunday where Modi shared the stage with President Donald Trump. The mega community summit at the NRG Stadium was completely sold out and more than 50,000 people attended it.
