The No-confidence Motion in Lok Sabha today apart from the exchange of allegations being made by both the opposition and ruling government will be remembered for the filmiest and family-friendly moments of Indian Politics in the recent times.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi after concluding his speech went straight to PM Modi’s seat and after a soothing conversation gave him a hug. This moment can easily replace the iconic scene of ‘Jadoo ki Jhappi’ between Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Dutt in Munnabhai MBBS.
Rahul Gandhi after his gesture, spoke “Aap logon ke andar mere liye nafrat hai, aap mujhe Pappu aur bohot gaaliyan dekar bula sakte hain, lekin mere andar aapke liye nafrat nahi hai (You guys have hatred against me, you can call me ‘Pappu’ or lash me with abusive words, but I don’t have a feeling of hatred against you”).
What really had the members of the Lok Sabha in splits and led them into a burst of laughter was when Rahul hilariously remarked at PM Modi, “Aap meri aankh mein aankh nahi daal sakte (you can’t meet my gaze)!”
Rahul Gandhi who started his speech by saying, “TDP is the victim of a 21st-century political weapon… The political weapon is called the ‘jumla strike’ “, ended his speech with something which destroyed the entire Lok Sabha – ‘ Wink -Missile’ while Nirmala Sitharaman started off her speech. While obviously Rahul did not cause an earthquake in the House like Giriraj Singh BJP leader said, he sure did get everyone shaken with his hilarious yet on-point potshots taken tat the Modi-led BJP government.
Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Wink-e-pedia’ lesson surely taught the ruling Narendra Modi government that in the serious business of Politics, leaders should take a moment to smile.
