Amit Shah attacks Manmohan Singh; questions his silence on 'monumental loot'

The seaplane that will carry the Prime Minister does a test run in Ahmedabad on Tuesday

However, BJP used this in their favour and Modi appealed to the people of Gujarat that Congress had not just insulted him, but entire Gujarat and the Gujaratis should give a befitting reply to them by voting for BJP. And this time Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah jumped into the ring.

Five terrorists had entered the Parliament in a auto with labels of Home Ministry and Parliament to launch the attack.

He added that he sincerely hoped that PM Modi will show "maturity and gravitas", as expected of the high office he holds, instead of concentrating his energy exclusively on scoring "erroneously conceived brownie points".

Singh later demanded that Modi apologise for "his ill thought transgression".

Modi's comments had attracted strident criticism from Opposition leaders, including Dr Singh who had accused the Prime Minister of spreading "falsehoods and canards" and for "setting a risky precedent by his insatiable desire to tarnish every constitutional office".

The former premier also asserted that Modi "is setting a risky precedent by his insatiable desire to tarnish every constitutional office, including that of a former prime minister and Army Chief", and described it as sad and regrettable.

"My track record of public service to the country over last five decades is known to everyone". Singh's second salvo in three days was apparently aimed at ensuring there was no let up in the heat on the BJP ahead of tomorrow's polling in 93 constituencies of Gujarat. "What is the reason for secret meeting with Pakistanis", asked Modi. Why did he not consider it appropriate to apprise GoI about such a meeting with a neighbour like Pakistan. "Why did he try to hide it?", he charged.

The meeting between senior Congress leaders and Pakistani officials took place at expelled leader Mani Shankar Aiyar's residence on December 6.

The Congress has discussed the issue with other Opposition parties and reached the conclusion that the Prime Minister's comments can not be ignored as this would have serious consequences for both domestic politics and diplomatic relations. "The nation missed this anger then!"
