Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday grabbed attention by taking a dig at his predecessor Manmohan Singh for staying clean despite series of scam during UPA rule. “Even though many scams took place in the country, Singh’s image remained clean,” Modi said in Rajya Sabha, adding, “People should learn from Dr. Singh how to bathe in bathroom wearing a raincoat.”
Modi’s remark upset the Congress members in the house and they staged a walk out. The Congress dubbed Modi as “arrogant” and charged him with bringing the debate to “the lowest level” and demanded immediate apology. The party said the words used by Modi in the Rajya Sabha against Singh were “extremely poor” in taste and “unbecoming of a Prime Minister”.

PM Modi says Manmohan Singh wore a raincoat to avoid getting tainted. Perhaps he wore gloves to avoid bloodstains of 2002 Gujarat riots
