WATCH: Indian MP appears dressed as Hitler in protest against Modi

Published: Updated:

Naramalli Sivaprasad, Indian film actor turned politician, showed up at parliament dressed as Adolf Hitler on Thursday.

He was wearing a fake khaki coat with swastika symbols including Hitler’s mustache.

When he first entered parliament, Sivaprasad raised his hand and gave journalists a Nazi salute.

He said his aim was to send a message to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "not follow in Hitler’s footsteps." Modi had allegedly promised Sivaprasad to send more funds to his state, Andhra Pradesh.

However, Modi denies these claims.

According to the Associated Press, Sivaprasad’s appearance did not cause any controversy among other deputies.

“He does not get the pulse of what people want and I want to urge him to not be like him (Hitler),” he said.
