New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to not only hug world leaders, but also India's farmers and soldiers.
Taking to Twitter, the Congress chief questioned the Prime Minister's desire to only embrace important people and not commoners.
On Sunday, the Congress mocked Modi by posting a video on Twitter, with a tagline 'hugplomacy', after he received his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu at an airport in New Delhi.
खुद को बताते हैं जो बहुत ‘आम’
‘खास’ को ही गले लगाना उनका काम
मोदीजी, ऐसी भी क्या मजबूरी
गले लगाने वालों में
किसान मजदूर और जवान का होना भी है ज़रूरीhttps://t.co/GXAg36cOIU— Office of RG (@OfficeOfRG) January 22, 2018
In the video, the Congress ridiculed Modi's ways of hugging several world leaders by describing them with comic tags along with gifs.
The Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu was accompanied by his wife Sara and a 130-member delegation from various sectors, including cyber, agriculture and defence to India last week.
