Patna(Bihar)[India], Feb. 10(ANI): The Janata Dal (United) JD(U) on Friday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's remark on his predecessor Dr. Manmohan Singh has shamed the nation. "Prime Minister Modi has ashamed the nation by his remarks. All the norms and regulations of the Parliament have been tainted. No prime minister in the past has ever commented on his predecessor like the way Modi ji has done. Prime Minister should maintain the dignity of the Parliament and reinstate the situation," JD(U) leader Rajeev Ranjan told ANI here. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi began his Uttarakhand campaign on Thursday with a scathing attack on Prime Minister Modi for his remarks against former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Speaking in Sitarganj constituency,Gandhi said Singh was an "elected" PM of India and "when Narendra Modi speaks about Manmohan Singh in this manner he is not talking only about Manmohan Singh, he is talking about every citizen of India". Modi is the first Prime Minister who cannot talk decently about past prime ministers. He should learn," said Gandhi. Gandhi added that when Modi became the Prime Minister, he got "full majority" and "people had faith", adding that "different promises were made" back then.(ANI)
