On the 28th of December, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to students of IIT Kanpur. Many leaders of the BJP and the government were quick to tweet that this was a surprise visit by Modi who wanted to interact with students that were not a part of the convocation organised earlier.
But seeing the students all dressed up like backup dancers from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham made Indian Twitter suspicious about the ‘surprise’.
Never knew IIT kanpur till 2021 has a strict single color dress code for students where girls would require to wear a sari and boys would be wearing kurta and a tight churidaar pajama! Outdated seriously! @IITKanpur pic.twitter.com/1thkFexGjz— Mohsin Zaidi (@Mohsin_Xaidi) December 30, 2021
If this was a surprise visit how come all the students are seen in this dress code?? Maybe IIT students wear a kurta pyjama to college every day— Nishesh (@Nishesho) December 29, 2021
They were all dressed and waiting to dance for a Bole Chudiyan instareel and bugger ruined it. https://t.co/E1Q2sJmV0l— Schrödinger’s acc. (@guiltypressurre) December 30, 2021

Students at IIT Kanpur looks like they’re always “wedding ready”, whereas students at my college looked like they were homeless, on normal days. https://t.co/Svs8MN8KcJ— Elina – mostly shit posting until further notice (@LawyerInBaking) December 29, 2021
Having been in IIT Kgp and IIT Kanpur n number of times, I can guarantee the chances of students dressed like this on a normal, casual day, is less than finding a ray of hope in hell!— ঈশিতা (Ishita Mukherjee) (@Ishcomic) December 29, 2021
In fact, you wouldn’t even find any professor dressed like this 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️ https://t.co/wj2n4m4RBB
