Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched an attack on former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while addressing the Rajya Sabha.

“Manmohan Singh had spotless image because only he knew the art of taking bath with the rain coat on,” PM Modi said.

His remark caused a huge uproar in the Rajya Sabha with Congress staging a walk out. They were joined by members of some other opposition parties.

“Look at his arrogance, he chooses to speak when everyone else is done & then makes unsubstantiable allegations,” said senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal reacting to the incident.

Later, Sibal also said that Congress will boycott the PM in parliament and won’t let him speak until he apologises for his remarks.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel also condemned the statements made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha. However, Manmohan Singh refused to speak on the matter.
