BJP MP Nishikant Dubey said his party leaders fear to hug Rahul Gandhi Since their wives might divorce them for hugging him. He also said that his party leaders are cautious of Section 377 in the Indian Penal Code.
Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code states that, “Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with 1[imprisonment for life], or with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.”
Yesterday, the Congress president Rahul Gandhi joked at BJP leaders that now they would take two steps back on spotting him. During a gathering at Delhi, he said, “It is very interesting how this works, because now whenever I come across BJP MPs, they take two steps back… we have to be careful he is going to hug us.”
The BJP MP, when asked to respond on the Congress chief’s statement, said that “Yes we do fear to hug Rahul Gandhi as our wives might divorce us after that. Also, Section 377 hasn’t been scrapped as yet. If he gets married, we will hug him”
