Today is official,"Hug day." 🤗🤗— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) July 20, 2018
Rahul Gandhi hugged Modi and later appeared to wink in some dramatic moments in the Lok Sabha, capping his blistering attack at the Prime Minister, accusing him of being a ‘bhagidar’ (collaborator) in corruption and not a ‘chowkidar’ and adding people were victims of his ‘jumla’ strikes. As Gandhi took his seat, he appeared to wink.
Priya Prakash Warrier, who went viral a few months ago for her own wink, also reacted to what happened in Parliament. During an interview to News 18, the actor said, “I’ve come back from college to see the news that Rahul Gandhi has winked... it was a very sweet gesture and I’m very happy that it was my signature move in the movie where I started off. So, yeah, today I’m very happy.”
Here are a few more reactions to the incident:
Sending hugs to everyone!!!!— Shruti Seth (@SethShruti) July 20, 2018
What's childish about a hug? It was sorta sweet, actually. BJP should accept it with grace & perhaps send some love back, instead of being negative and churlish. Also, it would be more becoming of the govt. to answer each point Rahul made pre-hug. That's what we want to hear. https://t.co/Bl2gM8osPI— VISHAL DADLANI (@VishalDadlani) July 20, 2018
