Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his raincoat jibe at former prime minister Manmohan Singh saying the event was "saddening and shameful".
Rahul tweeted saying that Modi hurt the dignity of the parliament and the nation with his words.
Earlier on Wednesday, in his reply to a debate in Rajya Sabha on the Motion of Thanks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jibe at Singh prompting the Congress to stage a walkout.
So many scams occurred...We politicians have a lot to learn from Dr (Manmohan Singh) Sahab. So much happened, there is not a single blot on him. Dr Sahab is the only person who knows the art of bathing in a bathroom with a raincoat on.Narendra Modi
