Lambasting Congress for mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘hugplomacy’ in a meme video on Twitter, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said sarcastically that the video showed the ‘new’ thinking of the grand old party under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi. 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. BJP leader Nalin Kohli also hit out at Congress. ‘The video is absolutely despicable. It is making fun of the Prime Minister of India that too with the other global leaders of the countries with whom we have good relations. This is a new thinking of the Congress Party under the supervision of Rahul Gandhi. It must be condemned in every possible manner,’ senior BJP leader Nalin Kohli told ANI.He added that the video has not been made in India, as the kind of music and reaction shown of the people were not Indians. ‘This is a thinking which is alien to India as in India we greet with warmth and hugging is a part of our friendly nature. Making fun of the Prime Minister by the Congress Party for something which is very Indian and is a part of our culture and that too tweeting it, is condemnable. The video is clearly made in abroad,’ Kohli stated.Also readNetanyahu in India: Delhi’s iconic city Teen Murti Chowk renamed after Israeli city Haifa; know whyUnion minister Prakash Javadekar slammed Congress for sharing a video mocking the PM. Shared when Israel PM Netanyahu is visiting India, the video showed PM sharing hugs with various world leaders.Hitting out at BJP, Javadekar said: “Congress lacks concrete issues to discuss so they tweeted a disgusting video showing PM Modi when he was receiving Israel PM.

This not only insults our PM but also a guest.”Another BJP leader Sambit Patra said the tweet was absolutely appalling. ‘This is not the way you talk about the Indian Prime Minister and that too when foreign dignitary, Israel Prime Minister is on the Indian soil. The entire world is watching as what is happening to India and Israel relationship. Is this the way main Opposition party of India behaves’’ he asked.Patra further said the Congress has been consistent in abusing Prime Minister Modi. ‘First they called him ‘Neech’ (a low life) and earlier they said ‘Tu Jake Chai Bech’ (go and sell tea) and now we have this kind of tweet. Is this the understanding of the Congress Party as far as the foreign policy is concerned’’ he questioned.Earlier in the day, the Congress mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi by posting a video on Twitter, with a tagline ‘hugplomacy’, after he received his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu at an airport here.
