Prime minister Narendra Modi is good with selfies. His latest selfie with Chinese premier Li Keqiang created a buzz across the world and was shared widely on social media. The selfie also prompted the Washington Post to call him a selfie obsessed prime minister. The Wall Street Journal on the other hand termed it the most power-packed selfie in history.

The journey started during Lok Sabha elections when the PM took selfie with his inked finger outside a polling booth in Ahmedabad.  He later posted the picture on Twitter saying, “Voted. Here is my selfie.” This became a controversial issue as Modi held up the election symbol of the Bharatiya Janata Party in the picture and addressed the media near the polling station. An FIR was ordered by Election Commission, later he got a clean chit in the case.

Here is a look back at some of his famous selfies posted in one year.
