Cong to boycott PM in Parliament over ‘raincoat' jibe

NEW DELHI: Enraged by his “raincoat jibe” against Manmohan Singh, Congress today announced that it will boycott Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament during the entire session and will try to bring on board other opposition parties too.

“We will boycott the Prime Minister. We will not listen to him, but we will not assault the dignity of the office of the Prime Minister. At the same time, we will continue to protest, we know that he is an obdurate person.

“It is sad that we have an arrogant person who occupies the chair of the Prime Minister. He has demeaned his office repeatedly by his choice of words and language,” Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma told reporters.


Congress this morning held a strategy meet of opposition parties including JD(U), Left, DMK and Samajwadi Party over the issue.


Sharma claimed that the other parties too will join them.


Asked if the boycott will be for this Session alone, he said this is a long session and the opposition parties will meet in the inter-session period. (AGENCIES)
