He extended a hand of care and compassion and called on Parrikar to share his concern and wish speedy recovery.’

‘Congress party has always been in a politics that believes in humane values and has social welfare at the heart. We never believe in politics of vindictiveness and vengeance which is reflected through the visit of our National President,’ he said.

‘Our President had even hugged Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji in the Parliament passing on the message that Congress knows to spread love even to the arch political rivals. That is why despite being on a private visit, our National President managed to take off time to meet him,’ he said.
