Union minister Giriraj Singh, mask in place, leaned over in what seemed a half hug and got close to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor to say something into his ear outside the Parliament House on Wednesday and it was at this time that the bonhomie between the two leaders from the rival parties was captured in a photograph. The minister’s rudraksh clad wrist was placed over a smiling Tharoor’s right shoulder.

The photograph was posted on Twitter by journalist Payal mehta who captioned it “Photo of the day” with a series of smiling emojis.

Shortly after that, the Thiruvananthapuram MP tweeted the photo explaining the sequence of events and the conversation between the two leaders.

“This was when i told @girirajsinghbjp that a Department of Fisheries in a larger Ministry of Animal Husbandry is not the same as a Ministry of Fisheries, which @inCIndia & @RahulGandhi have rightly been asking for (& as i have done since 2014),” said Tharoor.

Targeting Rahul Gandhi over his comments on creating a separate fisheries ministry, Giriraj Singh yesterday said the Congress leader should be “sent to school” so he could learn about ministries and departments that exist under the central government. Last month, Gandhi had talked about the need for a separate fisheries ministry.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, home minister Amit Shah and several Union ministers as well as BJP leaders had mocked the Congress leader over his ministries remark, saying that the ministry of fisheries, animal husbandry and dairying already existed.

Clarifying his remarks, Gandhi said that he was referring to a separate ministry for fisheries.
