New Delhi [India], Feb 14 (ANI): Questioning the recent choice of words used by Prime Minister Narendra Modi against the grand old party, the Congress on Tuesday asserted that it is high time somebody taught him to speak in a civilized manner. Referring to Prime Minister's speech at Lakhimpur Kheri, rally Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar averred that the former is a master of making false allegations without substantiating them. "Modi is a master of making false allegations. It's not only that he makes false allegations, he never carries them through to any kind of conclusion. He jumps like a grass hopper from one allegation to another allegation," said Aiyar. "Making these allegations is part of democratic politics but a Prime Minister is a Prime Minister, I just expect him to use language which is befitting of a head of a government . I am afraid Modi doesn't seem to know how to speak in civilized language. It was alright when he wasn't the Prime Minister it was okay. It is time when somebody taught him how to speak in civilized manner," he added. Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's repeated assertion of 'kaam bolta hai', Prime Minister Modi yesterday threw light on the rising crime rate in Uttar Pradesh and accused the Samajwadi Party of fooling the people. "They (Akhilesh) say 'kaam bolta hai', but several projects here are incomplete. What is speaking volumes are the instances of women harassment in the state," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing a rally here. "The people of Uttar Pradesh are not fools. They're well aware that criminals are still operating their gangs from behind bars," he added. Prime Minister Modi also accused the Samajwadi Party of not fulfilling the promises made to the people of the state. "A scam that you (Akhilesh) promised to look into from the tenure of Mayawati ji was not done. Can the Chief Minster answer why was it not probed?" he added. Prime Minister Modi also taunted the newly-formed alliance between the Samajwadi Party and Congress while stating that nothing can redeem their past misdeeds. The campaigning for the second phase of the politically crucial Uttar Pradesh assembly elections will come to an end this evening in 67 constituencies spread over 11 districts. Polling in these constituencies will be held on February 15. (ANI)
