Sitaram Yechury attacks Narendra Modi for his remarks on former PM Manmohan Singh
CPI(M) General Secretary, Sitaram Yechury has attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his remarks on former PM Manmohan Singh.
On Wednesday, Yechury said that the Prime Minister had no answers to opposition's questions and that his only response to serious issues was "personal insults to senior leaders".

Yechury took to Facebook and Twitter to criticise the Prime Minister's remarks.

"Rudeness is the weak person's imitation of strength," Yechury wrote on his Twitter account.

On his Facebook page, Yechury wrote that "The PM has no answers. He drives fellow parliamentarians away by insult, invective and abuse. What should have been a reply to a rich debate on the motion of thanks for the President's address was reduced to a farcical street-corner speech. Personal insults to senior opposition leaders, including a respected former Prime Minister, is the only response Modi has to serious issues raised by us in the House."

He also termed the Modi government as "the most 'bereham'" and "callous government we have seen since independence."

Attacking the Prime Minster's stand on demonetisation, Yechury wrote "more than a hundred people have died standing in bank queues in the wake of demonetisation, apart from millions of livelihoods destroyed. Yet there is not even an acknowledgement from Modi, leave alone a condolence resolution for those who died."

He also attacked the Modi led government on increasing farmers' suicides and said that the numbers have risen exponentially under Modi's watch.

On Wednesday, Modi had launched an attack on Mammohan Singh, saying that politicians should learn from Singh how to maintain a clean image even after 35 long years of public life dotted with scams under his leadership.

"There is a lot for us politicians to learn... so much happened he did not get even a taint. Only Doctor Sahab (Manmohan Singh) knows the art of bathing wearing a rain coat," Modi had said. The statement resulted in a a huge uproar from Congress MPs who later staged a walkout.
