Rahul Gandhi hugs PM Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday took everyone in the Lok Sabha by surprise when he went and hugged Prime Minister Narendra Modi after tearing into the BJP-led government during the no confidence motion.

“I have not an iota of hatred or hard feelings against you. You hate me, I maybe ‘Pappu’ for you. But I love you and respect you because I am the Congress,” Gandhi said at the end of his speech.

He then hugged PM Modi who was also taken by surprise. The Prime Minister, a little taken aback at first, called Gandhi back and shook hands with him with a pat on his back.

As the opposition members gave Gandhi a standing ovation and thumped their desks, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said such conduct was against the rules of the House.
