New Delhi [India], Oct. 15 (ANI): Rejecting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's assertion that Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar actions speaks louder than words, the Congress has said the latter displays exactly the opposite.

"The difficulty is that we have a defence minister who possibly speaks more than he acts, therefore, his public profile has been the exact opposite of what the Prime Minister has described him as," Congress leader Manish Tewari told ANI.

Tewari's comments came against the backdrop of Prime Minister Modi lauding the Indian Army and Parrikar for carrying out surgical strikes to eliminate terrorists across the Line of Control.

While addressing ex-servicemen during the inauguration of a war memorial in Bhopal, Prime Minister Modi on Friday said, "Like our army which doesn't speak, but displays its valour through its actions, similarly our Defence Minister also doesn't speak, but lets his work talk for him," he said on Friday .
