Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison recalled PM Narendra Modi's 'hologram' campaign which had become popular in the 2014 Lok Sabha election campaign.

PM Morrison was addressing the Virtual India-Australia bilateral summit in presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

PM Morrison has been quoted as saying: "Namaste, tremendous joy to be joined again as we have done on a number of occasions, but in this format. It doesn't surprise me as in these circumstances this is how we will continue to meet.

You were the one who started using hologram while campaigning many years ago. Might be next time we can have a hologram of your excellency, and in Australia likewise. You have been the pioneer in using technology in India and we may follow. "

PM Modi laughed on hearing the suggestion from PM Morrison.

Modi had used the hologram technology for his election campaign during the 2014 Lok sabha campaign. Voters got a chance to connect with the new style of campaign.

The three dimensional facet added a dash of technological vigour to his multi dimensional approach to building communication.
