<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> A day after the Congress vice-president accused him of receiving crores in kickbacks as the Gujarat Chief Minister, Prime Minister Modi today taunted the former and said that he is “learning how to speak”.‘They have a youth leader; he is learning how to give speeches. Since the time he has learnt to speak, my happiness has no limits,’ he jocularly said at an event in his parliamentary constituency Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.”There would have been an earthquake had he not spoken… good that he has started speaking, we now know that there’s no chance of an earthquake,’ he added.Silencing his critics, the Prime Minister in an apparent reference to those questioning his government’s demonetisation drive said that he never imagined politicians would “stand with the corrupt”.”The commotion created in Parliament is like the ‘cover fire’ that Pakistan uses to ensure terrorists infiltrate into India. Similarly, the ruckus in Parliament lets cheats get away,’ he said while referring to Parliament’s just-concluded Winter Session.Prime Minister Modi also criticized the opposition for “protesting everything.””Our army makes us proud but some people have questions even on their bravery. Is it good to view institutions like this’” he said.The Prime Minister also cornered his predecessor for his disagreement over demonetisation, saying the latter by doing so is exposing his own misdeeds. ‘(Congress) PM Manmohan Singh said that ‘in a country where 50 percent of people are poor what can things like technology do’’ Now tell me, was he giving his own report card or mine’ Whose legacy is this 50 percent poverty’’ he asked.
