Mumbai(Maharashtra)[India], Feb. 9(ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) on Thursday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not targeted his predecessor Dr. Manmohan Singh but remarked on latter's regime which was tainted with scams. "Prime Minister Modi has not targeted Dr. Manmohan Singh but his government and if there have been scams and there are blemishes, shouldn't that be questioned?" BJP leader Shaina NC told ANI. She added that Prime Minister Modi has raised the part of transparent accountability process in public life. "One talks about credibility and integrity in public life and these are part of transparent accountable process and Prime Minister Modi has questioned that part of the previous regime. That is not targeting Manmohan Singh ji but targeting the previous government," she added. After his 'earthquake' jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in the parliament, the Prime Minister on Wednesday earned the wrath of the grand old party by training guns at Dr. Manmohan Singh during the Parliament session. "Dr. Manhmohan has played a significant role in the economic system of India. But during the most corrupt regime in the nation, there was not a single corruption charge against him. This art of taking bath wearing a raincoat must be learnt from Manmohan Singh," the Prime Minister said, setting off cries of outrage by the Congress. Immediately the Congress MPs staged a walkout, to which the Prime Minister responded, saying that if the Opposition breaches decorum then they should also have the courage to listen to the response. Outside the Parliament, Dr. Singh maintained his trademark calm and simply chose not to respond to questions over the Prime Minister's statement.(ANI)
