Indian MP dons Hitler attire to send a message

By David Reed

An Indian politician has appeared in the country's parliament dressed like Adolf Hitler.

Naramalli Sivaprasad had a toothbrush moustache and was wearing a khaki coat with swastika symbols on his pocket and arm. He was asking for more funds for the development of his state in southern India.

Mr Sivaprasad also raised his hand in a Nazi salute for the media. His appearance did not trigger any protests from fellow parliamentarians.

He said he wanted to send a message to Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to follow Hitler. He complained that Mr Modi had gone back on a promise to provide extra funds for his Andhra Pradesh state.
