New Delhi, Feb 8:

Rajya Sabha witnessed a major chaos when Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that only his predecessor Manmohan Singh could teach the art of taking bath with the raincoat on.

The Congress reacted sharply to the comment and staged a walk out from the House.

Modi made the comment while responding to the debate on the motion of thanks to the President’s address.

Modi said that Manmohan Singh had associated with the country’s economic activities for a long time “and yet there was no blame against him”.

“How to take bath with a rain coat on could only be learnt from Manmohan Singh ji,” he said.

Reacting to it, the Congress members shouted at the treasury benches and staged a walk out.

They were joined by members of some other opposition parties.

Singh was the Prime Minister for 10 years and headed UPA-I and UPA-II governments. (IANS)
