New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said some of his own part members did not like it when he hugged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament.

In his address in Hamburg, Germany, Gandhi also said there is a big job problem in India but the prime minister refuses to see it. "You have to accept the problem to fix it," he said.

Gandhi also talked about his father former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi's assailants.

"When I saw the man who killed my father lying dead in a field in Sri Lanka, I did not like it, I saw his crying children in him," he said.
