PM Modi does not behave like a Prime Minister, alleges Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi : After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's sharp "Tubelight" dig at Rahul Gandhi in the Parliament, the latter responded next day. PM Modi "does not behave like a Prime Minister", said the Congress leader.
"Normally, a prime minister has a particular status, a prime minister has a particular way of behaving, a particular stature, our prime minister doesn't have these. He does not behave in a prime ministerial way," he told reporters outside Parliament on Friday.
Interestingly, on Thursday, Rahul Gandhi had refrained himself from making any type of comment on the barb and had alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is distracting India from the government's failure to lift the economy and the crisis of jobs.
PM Modi, while replying to the president's debate, had referred to Rahul Gandhi's comments at a rally for the Delhi election on "youth beating Modi with dandas (sticks) over the lack of jobs and throwing him out of the country".
As Rahul Gandhi appeared to be attempting to say something, the Prime Minister remarked: "I have been speaking for 30-40 minutes but it took this long for the current to reach. Bahut se tubelight aise hi hotey hai (many tubelights are like this)".
