BJP won the majority of the votes in Lok Sabha 2019 elections and Narendra Modi was appointed as the Prime Minister.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi then gave a speech to the newly appointed members at the Parliament Central Hall on Saturday evening.

Apparently, Modi uttered the word Abhinandan during the speech, by which he meant praise and acclamation for his party workers and supporters. However, a Pakistani channel chose to stick to that word and thought that Modi was remembering Wing Commander Abhinandan in the speech.
