New Delhi [India], July 26 (ANI): BJP MP from Jharkhand, Nishikant Dubey, has said his party members fear that hugging Congress president Rahul Gandhi might lead to divorce.
"Yes, we do fear hugging Rahul Gandhi. Our wives might divorce us after that. Also, Section 377 has not been scrapped as yet. If he gets married, we will hug him," Dubey said.
The comment came in the backdrop of Gandhi's recent comment where he said that BJP MPs take two steps back whenever he meets them fearing that he would hug them.
Last week, Gandhi garnered huge attention after he walked up to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and hugged him, following his speech in the Lok Sabha over the No-Confidence Motion. (ANI)
