"I met the French prime minister that is there a pact, but he said that there is no such pact between the two countries". The Prime Minister did not budge and tried to shake hands instead.
"You have anger against me, you can call me names, you can abuse me, but I don't have a speck of hatred against you". Modi then called Rahul back to his chair and fondly patted him on his back. And it looks like Rahul Gandhi's wink has managed to floor Priya Prakash. The list of the 314 MPs does not include Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who is also a BJP MP.
Rahul Gandhi's action of giving Narendra Modi a hug in Parliment spread like wild fire on social media. The Prime Minister has not been truthful.
By garnering the support of "secret friends" in the form of "non-aligned" regional parties like the Telangana Rashtra Samiti, the YSR Congress, the AIADMK, the JD (S), Shiv Sena, the Prime Minister wants to weaken the impression of regional parties floating an anti-BJP front before the 2019 elections.
The Congress's charge was led by President Rahul Gandhi, who attacked the government over demonetisation, women's safety in India, GST and the Rafale deal. I will take out this hatred out of you and turn it into love. Because I am Congress. On returning to his seat, Rahul said: "The meaning of being Hindu is to embrace the whole world. Modi was arrogant even in response to this sweet gesture".
The party's communications chief Randeep Surjewala tweeted: " Humne duniya mein muhabbat ka asar zinda kiya hai/virodhi ko gale mil-mil ke sharminda kiya hai".
Ruling coalition, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), appeared confident of the numbers with Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar saying that it will be "NDA plus" at the end of voting. Union minister Harsimrat Kaur said Rahul could not do the "pappi-jhappi moment" in the House. They are not like any of us. So I also asked him with a smile 'aaj aap kaunsa kar ke aae hai (what did you take today).
