Why Rahul Gandhi hugged PM Narendra Modi in Parliament

Why Rahul Gandhi hugged PM Narendra Modi in Parliament

Quoting Rahul Gandhi who said he was open to being the PM if the Mahagathbandhan came to power, Modi quizzed, "What about the aspirations of your allies?" Modi looked at him askance. "I am the Congress", said Gandhi, while the MPs, including Modi and the speaker, could be seen breaking into laughter.

Critics accuse the BJP of divisive politics and of trying to undermine India's pluralistic foundations enshrined in the constitution.

By garnering the support of "secret friends" in the form of "non-aligned" regional parties like the Telangana Rashtra Samiti, the YSR Congress, the AIADMK, the JD (S), Shiv Sena, the Prime Minister wants to weaken the impression of regional parties floating an anti-BJP front before the 2019 elections.

"You have hatred for me". He said, "I have spoken about the Prime Minister and that he can not face me or stare me in my eyes". You have anger against me. "I will transform all of you into the Congress".

Modi himself is known for his bear hugs, embracing world leaders such as U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This gave the prime minister an opportunity to build some rhythm with his speech. And then the Congress president hugs the PM - a long-drawn tight hug.

Rahul returned to his seat and reiterated that violence and hatred do not have any place in India and Hinduism. The two leaders then shook hands and a smiling PM was then seen muttering something to the young Congress president. Any decent man would have reacted with grace. He picked up issues like demonetisation, GST, surgical strikes and other issues.

The party's communications chief Randeep Surjewala tweeted: " Humne duniya mein muhabbat ka asar zinda kiya hai/virodhi ko gale mil-mil ke sharminda kiya hai". The ruling alliance has also pinned hope on 70 MPs from non-aligned regional parties including the AIADMK (37), the BJD (20), the TRS (11) and the INLD (2) - which may remain neutral even if they do not vote against the motion.

Textiles Minister Smriti Irani accused Gandhi of indulging in rhetoric and asked him back up his accusations with proof. Lawyer Prashant Bhushan wrote, "the manner in which BJP is disrupting Rahul Gandhi's speech in the #NoConfidenceMotion, especially when he spoke of Rafale deal, JayShah, Ambani, Adani, NiMo, State of women & lynching shows it's nervousness on being exposed on economy, law&order, corruption & crony Capitalism". Kaur told reporters later.
