Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should get himself medically tested after Congress President Rahul Gandhi embraced him during the No-Confidence Motion debate in the Lok Sabha.
“Rahul Gandhi should not have embraced the Prime Minister all of a sudden. What does it say about the protection of the Prime Minister inside the Parliament? This is absolutely unethical and such behaviour should be discouraged so that it does not happen in the future,” said Swamy condemning the Congress president’s unexpected hug to PM Modi.
Gandhi, after ending his speech, moved across the floor to get to the treasury benches towards the Prime Minister. They embraced each other, and as Gandhi was returning to his seat, Prime Minister Modi was seen calling him back and they exchanged some words. The gesture seemed to ease the tempers.
However, the PM was not at all impressed and unleashed his annoyance on Gandhi in a no-holds-barred attack while speaking in the Lower House of the Parliament.
Speaking in the Lower House of the Parliament, the Prime Minister had said, “I was surprised at Rahul Gandhi’s excitement to come and hug me. What is the hurry? You should trust the people in a democracy. Some people are in a rush to get to the treasury benches.”
