Congress today took potshots at Narendra Modi over his meeting with RSS leaders saying he was being dictated by the "most unaccountable remote control", while CPI(M) dubbed as internal matter of BJP the meetings Modi and party chief Rajnath Singh had with Sangh top brass.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here that people of India for many decades have seen that "it is the most unaccountable remote control of Nagpur and the Prime Ministerial aspirant is no more with all his 56-inch chest except someone running on remote control."

During the election campaign, Modi had accused Congress chief Sonia Gandhi of running the government with remote control without being accountable.

Targeting RSS, Singhvi wondered whether the Sangh filed any return to the Election Commission and whether it was accountable to the people.

CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury dubbed as an "internal matter" of BJP the meeting Modi and the BJP chief Rajnath Singh had with RSS top brass.

"BJP has always been and will remain the political front of the RSS and it was their internal matter why and what they are meeting for," Yechury told reporters here.

He was asked to comment on Modi's long meeting with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat here after the end of the campaigning yesterday to review the electioneering and the BJP chief meeting senior Sangh leaders at the RSS office here today.
