New Delhi:

US President Donald Trump’s recent tweet on “developing relationship with Pakistan” gave a reason to the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to take a jibe on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Taking a dig on Modi, Gandhi tweeted, “Modi ji quick; looks like President Trump needs another hug.”

US President Donald Trump on October 14 had tweeted, “Starting to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan and its leaders. I want to thank them for their cooperation on many fronts.”

The tweet was made by Trump after Pakistani forces rescued an American-Canadian family from the Afghanistan-based Haqqani terror network.

Caitlan Coleman and his family were kidnapped in 2012 while on a backpacking trip in Afghanistan. Their three children were born while the couple was in captivity.

PM Modi’s had last visited US in June. The two leaders — Modi and Trump — have been photographed hugging  at least in two occasion.

Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar then had said that the two leaders had also asked Pakistan not to allow usage of its territory be used to launch terror attacks.

India is yet to make a comment on Trump’s recent tweet.
