Earlier, Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over his hugging Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament, saying the party’s MPs fear that he may embrace them too and hence take “two steps back” on seeing him.

Gandhi, who was severely criticised by BJP leaders for hugging Modi during his speech on the no-confidence motion against the government last week, said he may have a difference of opinion with the ruling party leaders and he can fight them, but he doesn’t need to hate them.
