India's most influential political parties, BJP and Congress never leave a chance to take a jibe at each other. The two parties are once again locking horns for the Gujarat elections which has now become a battleground for both the parties. Acquiring victory has become a question of dignity for both parties, to gain which they are using all the dirty tricks which are usually condemned by political leaders.

India's Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who was criticised during his tenure for keeping mum on various issues was extremely " pained and anguished by falsehood and canards being spread" by the current Indian Prime Minister for political gains. The entire nation has witnessed Singh's dedication to towards the country and appreciated it despite the leader's silent approach.

Irked by the ruling party tarnishing the image of every Constitutional office in order to downplay the emerging Congress leaders during Gujarat elections, former PM issued an official statement on December 11 addressing the immoral behaviour of BJP during campaigning. The celebrated economist feels that Modi's fear of defeat in Gujarat Elections has provoked his actions.

Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar caught BJP's eye when he called PM Modi "neech" during an interview, for which, he later apologised and was even suspended from the party. However, Singh felt berated with Modi's claims of Congress leaders including former Vice President Hamid Ansari and himself conspiring with Pakistan to interfere in the Gujarat Assembly elections.

Singh further affirmed that the dinner organised by Aiyer on December 6 included a number of public servants and journalists who were directly called by the PM anti-nationalists in his statement and he, as the former Indian Prime Minister condemns these "innuendos and falsehoods". Manmohan Singh has hoped that Narendra Modi will apologise for his " ill-thought transgression" to the nation.
