The government faced some embarrassing moments soon after the Japanese royal couple landed at New Delhi on Saturday evening.
Even as the Prime Minister and his wife went to receive emperor Akihito and empress Michiko at the airport, his twitter handle misspellt the name of the empress as Kimicho.
The mistake was spotted within minutes and went viral on the social media. The tweet was soon deleted by the PMO but not before the Japanese embassy noticed the error. Japanese officials said this was an important symbolic visit and should treated with care.
PM's communications advisor Pankaj Pachauri said: "It was a typographical error which was corrected immediately."
