With raincoat jibe, PM has lowered dignity of his office: Rahul Gandhi

While addressing an election rally in Uttarakhand, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today said Narendra Modi had lowered the dignity of his office by his “raincoat” jibe against Manmohan Singh in Parliament.

Stepping up his attack on the prime minister, Rahul Gandhi said: “The Prime Minister’s office is not an ordinary one. Great honour is associated with it. So by targeting his predecessor in that manner, the Prime minister has lowered the dignity of his office.”


Referring to the former prime minister in course of his speech in the Rajya Sabha yesterday, Modi had said “Dr sahab’s” image remained clean despite his government being mired in scams, as only he knew the art of bathing with his raincoat on.

Rahul asked Modi to give an account of his performance during the two and a half years of his tenure. Rahul accused Modi of doing nothing except helping 50 industrialist companies close to him and making the whole country stand in queues with the note ban.

Addressing the election campaign in Someshwar, Rahul patted the back of Harish Rawat for his emphasis on employment for the youths. “I am happy that Rawatji is issuing unemployment allowance cards among the youth and arranging for their skill training to help them stand on their own feet,” Rahul said.
