PM Narendra Modi has just returned home after concluding his three-nation tour of Portugal, the US and the Netherlands.
This year marks 70 years of Indo-Dutch diplomatic relations. And on this occasion, on the final leg of his tour, Modi met his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte.
More than the meeting, however, it was a tweet by the official Twitter handle of the Dutch PM , that got Indians talking. The tweet in Hindi had no space between words.
Here’s what he tweeted:
And here’s how people reacted:

Soo overwhelmed Minister President, nice initiative to remove all space between the two countries. 😳❤— Lazy Cat ‘न’ (@uPoliticat) June 27, 2017
The massive trolling that the tweet received perhaps didn’t go unnoticed because the Dutch PM (or the Minister-President of Netherlands)’s official handle shortly posted another tweet, again in Hindi but this time with no space problem.
Many appreciated his efforts:
Yes, there is a space bar in Hindi. Makes sense with spaces added.— Sankrant Sanu सानु (@sankrant) June 27, 2017
