NEW DELHI: Though party leaders and Union ministers were publicly dismissive of Rahul Gandhi's speech in the Lok Sabha on Monday, the issue is a hot topic of discussion within the saffron party with even PM Narendra Modi patting the back of Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh for effectively replying to the Congress Vice-President in the House and encouraging the leaders to counter Congress charges.

During the weekly parliamentary party meeting on Tuesday, Modi made a special mention of how Singh had done a good job in hitting back at Gandhi. Soon after Gandhi ended his "intervention" on the agrarian crisis due to unseasonal rains and hailstorms, Finance Minister Arun Jaitey had called Singh to the front row and tutored him about the points he should make.

Singh had made a tongue-in-cheek remark welcoming Gandhi back to the country after his 56-day sojourn. He also challenged the figures quoted by Gandhi where the Congress leader had called the NDA government a "suit-boot" dispensation which is pro-corporate.
