New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying his ‘hugplomacy’ with US President Donald Trump had failed in keeping 26/11 terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed under arrest in Pakistan.

“Narendrabhai, बात नहीं बनी. Terror mastermind is free. President Trump just delinked Pak military funding from LeT. Hugplomacy fail. More hugs urgently needed,” the Congress leader tweeted in the run-up to Gujarat Assembly elections next months.



His tweet comes a day after Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) head and LeT founder Hafiz Saeed was freed from house arrest in Pakistan. Saeed, in his late 60s, was under house arrest for 297 days since January.

The fire-brand cleric's release after midnight came ahead of the 9th anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people, including six Americans, were killed.

The US has asked the Pakistan government to re-arrest and charge Saeed for his crimes.

Saeed’s release, however, has given the Congress ammo to attack the BJP-led Centre ahead of Gujarat Assembly elections next month.

This is the second time that Rahul Gandhi has mocked Modi’s bonhomie with Donald Trump.

In October, the Gandhi scion had posted a snapshot of Trump’s tweet on “improving ties” with Pakistan, and the US President needed “another hug”.
