Lok Sabha elections 2019: BJP spokesperson of Goa state Dattaprasad Naik on Monday attacked Rahul Gandhi and suggested the Congress party to find a "credible" leader for the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
He also attacked Congress president for winking after hugging PM Narendra Modi during the no-confidence debate in the Parliament on Friday.
"Rahul Gandhi who does not have substance or the understanding of issues related to the people of India had to resort to hugging the PM in the temple of democracy and then winking like a loafer," he said in a press note.

After a scathing criticism of PM Narendra Modi on several issues including Rafale jet deal, Congress president Rahul Gandhi walked across to the PM and hugged him, a gesture which took the members of Lok Sabha by surprise.
Modi, who initially looked nonplussed and did not stand up to hug him, recovered quickly and called Gandhi back and patted him on the back.
However, after coming back to his seat, Rahul Gandhi winked towards some Congress party member.
