“Eager for praise and impatient for a photo-opportunity, the Prime Minister reached Hyderabad to host a dinner for her. When the Prime Minister made such a beginning, then it is her prerogative,” Hooda alleged.
He claimed that after the Prime Minister himself used to be hosting a dinner for Trump, exterior affairs minister Sushma Swaraj would possibly had been questioning about what she used to be doing in Hyderabad.
