New Delhi, July 15: The Congress hit back at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on the question of secularism, asking what was the latter's definition of secularism.

Party general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday alleged that one religion, one culture and one nation is the definition of the RSS and senior BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani and asked Modi to explain his version of the idea.


Earlier on Sunday, Modi accused the Congress-led UPA government of hiding behind the veil of secularism whenever the country faced a crisis.

The leader lashed out at the Congress, saying it always wore the burqa of secularism and warned that it could not play with the poor, youth and the women of the country in the name of secularism.

Singh, on the other hand, also took on Modi after the latter criticised the UPA government's food security ordinance. He said the government was trying to provide food to the poor and needy and Modi shouldn't politicise the issue.

The Congress also continued to attack Modi over the recent 'puppy' controversy. Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said if a puppy comes under one's car, then either one cuddle and treat it or crush it. "What youd u call a man who does the latter (sic)," Tewari tweeted.
