Uttarakhand polls 2017: While addressing a rally in Uttarakhand’s Sitarganj on Thursday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over PM’s ‘raincoat’ remark on ex-PM Manmohan Singh and said that it was not just an insult against Manmohan, but was an insult of the whole nation as he was an elected Prime Minister of the country who served the nation as a PM for a decade. Gandhi said, “…Narendra Modi is the first Prime Minister who cannot speak in a respectable tone about former PMs… He should learn (how to treat former PMs)… Manmohan Singh was an elected Prime Minister. He was the prime minister of the country.”

Addressing a rally here in the poll-bound State, Gandhi said Modi has a weakness of grabbing headlines and he doesn’t get proper sleep the day he is not in the news.” Modi ji mein ek kamzori hai,unhe khabar mein rehna achha lgta hai. Lagta hai jis din wo khabar mei nhi ate,us din unhe sahi neend nhi aati,” Gandhi said.

The Congress leader also flayed Modi over the issue of note-ban. He said that PM trashed the hard earned money of masses, farmers and daily wagers rather than attacking and fetching black money from rich who have their money in real estate, bullion and in foreign banks.”In the name of fighting corruption, he put the people in bank queues,” added Gandhi.
