After suffering an uncharacteristically incisive personal attack launched by PM Narendra Modi on him, in which he raised questions about his integrity, former PM Manmohan Singh walked off in a dejected manner from the Rajya Sabha in a huff. Refusing to speak to the gathered reporters, Manmohan still managed to stay in character of keeping mum, and just had 6 words to says, “I do not want to speak.” Manmohan had walked out of the Rajya Sabha along with other Congress members in protest against PM Modi’s attack on Manmohan for pulling off a virtual miracle to emerge without a taint from the UPA government’s, which he headed as the prime minister for 10 corruption-filled years.

PM Modi in his speech to the Rajya Sabha on the debate on the motion of thanks to the President’s address today used the ‘raincoat in bathroom’ analogy to flay the former PM. He said, “The art of using a raincoat while taking a bath should be learnt from him (ex PM Manmohan Singh).

PM Modi also took another dig at Manmohan by saying that “For some 35 years, Manmohan Singh Ji had a lot of influence on country’s economic policies.” He then proceeded to disparage economists and said that, “World’s economists don’t know parameters to assess it. What India did will be a case study for economists worldwide. You quote foreign economists, I can quote 10 of them on the fact that such an action hasn’t been taken in the world ever.”

PM Modi as reacting to Congress, including former PM Manmohan Singh dubbing his demonetisation drive as “organised loot” and “plunder.

PM Modi sought to tarnish Manmohan’s image as a very honest prime minister by saying “the art of bathing in a bathroom with a raincoat on” is known only to the ex Prime Minister as there is “no blot on him” despite “all the scams”.

    Comments: Its very sad to read and watch on TVs, the severest fights, allegations and attacks on each other, by the India's top political national political parties. What is the truth, is not yet know to people. It looks that, all values of democracy are being given a back seat, just to win election by hook or crook. The grace and dignity of the top post of PM, is also under attack and being questioned. How sad it is? It looks that, time has come when, we must come out with a strictest law, to keep a check on speeches of Political leaders, and must review the fundamental right of freedom of speech, to avoid such fights between leaders.

      Should MMS be not responsible for scams committed while he was PM? It is surprising that why some sycophant don't keep country above individual.

          MMS made all sorts of personal allegations against Modi and BJP. People who sow the wind should be prepared to reap the whirlwind.

                        You should see all jumla words from our PM during election speeches. No one can match with him. And most are baseless.

                          question is about raincoat and bath. So correct analogy is gloves and murder. So why bother about other things. Word for word.

                                  A person is judged by his thoughts, if current PM is not showing any respect to his senior colleague , we can well image what he is actually, his origin, mental callabor.
