Extending Congress's attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'hugplomacy', party chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday asked him to hug 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.
"Khud ko batate hain jo bahut 'aam'; 'khas' ko gale lagana hai unka kaam; Modiji, aisi bhi kya majburi; gale lagane walon mein, kisaan mazdoor aur jawan ka hona bhi hai zaruri (Those who call themselves 'common' go about hugging 'special'; Modi ji, what holds you back from giving hugs to famers and soldiers)," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
Earlier on January 14, the Congress mocked Prime Minister Modi by posting a video on Twitter, with a tagline 'hugplomacy', after he received his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu at an airport here.
In the video, the Congress ridiculed Prime Minister Modi's ways of hugging with several world leaders by describing them with comic tags along with gifs.
