Rahul Gandhi walked up to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha and hugged him earlier today which took everyone by surprise. When Rahul Gandhi came near to PM Modi, there were cheers from the members. Both were seen talking and smiling for some seconds.

Without the drop of the hat, Rahul Gandhi gave PM Modi a hug. PM Modi called Rahul Gandhi once again and smiled at him and shook hands with him. Rahul Gandhi stressed the fact that he had no anger in his heart for the Prime Minister. “You call me pappu, you hurl other abuses at me, but there is no anger inside me for you,” he said.

“For the first time in the history of India, women are not being protected. Wherever you see, Dalit, Adivasis, minorities are being thrashed, killed, but the Prime Minister does not speak a word. Are these minorities, Adivasis, women, not a part of India? I want to tell you that you are the victim of a 21st-century political weapon. The political weapon is the jumla strike. First, there is a great sense of excitement and happiness. Then, there is a sense of shock,” Congress leader added.

Rahul Gandhi raised issues including unemployment and intolerance, calling out the PM for failing to fulfil the 2 crore jobs that he had promised 4 years back. “This is the hollowness of his words… sometimes they say make ‘pakodas’… open a shop… who will bring jobs?” he said. “He (Modi) must explain why. He is smiling. There is a touch of nervousness in the gentleman. And now he cannot look into my eyes.”

Gandhi also said that Amit Shah and PM Modi are 2 different types of politicians. “Amit Shah and Narendra Modi are two very different types of politicians. The difference between all of us and the prime minister and the president of the BJP is that we are okay with losing power, we can see ourselves being in and out of power, but for reasons everyone knows, the president of the BJP and the prime minister cannot afford to lose power. If they lose power, other processes will start against them…,” the Congress leader was quoted as saying by Huff Post.

“The president of the BJP and the prime minister act out of fear,” he said.
