Manmohan Singh was remote-controlled by Sonia and Rahul Gandhi: BJP general secretary

Vijayvargiya said Manmohan Singh should clarify whether he was "working under pressure of some people".

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on November 21 alleged that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was remote-controlled by Sonia Gandhi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

He also alleged that during Manmohan Singh's tenure, the economic condition of the country worsened.

"As a prime minister, Manmohan Singh was remote-controlled by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi," Vijayvargia told reporters.

"As a prime minister, Manmohan Singh used to take decisions in which there was a possibility of benefit to some people. Under his rule, corruption worth Rs 11 lakh crore took place," the BJP leader said.

Vijayvargiya said Manmohan Singh should clarify whether he was "working under pressure of some people".

"Manmohan is an economist. But during his tenure as the PM, the economic condition of the country worsened. During his rule, inflation and fiscal deficit increased and investment in infrastructure also declined."

During a rally in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh on November 20, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had alleged that the Congress-led UPA regime as 'Madam ki Sarakar' and 'remote controlwali sarkar'.

Addressing a press conference in Indore on November 21, Manmohan Singh denied Modi's charge that the UPA government led by him was a "remote-controlled" one.
