New Delhi, Feb 9: With Congress raising objections over Narendra Modi's raincoat jibe at his predecessor Manmohan Singh, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said it is the opposition party which should apologise for disrupting the Prime Minister's speech.

Javadekar said that Congress should apologise for repeatedly disrupting Modi's speech. "It was undemocratic on the part of #Cong members to repeatedly disrupt speech of @narendramodi in Rajya Sabha. Cong must apologise to PM," the HRD minister tweeted.

Earlier, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at Prime Minister Modi for his raincoat jibe at former prime minister Singh, terming it as 'saddening and shameful'.

Hitting back at Modi for his remarks on former prime minister Singh, the Congress on Wednesday said it was 'unbecoming of a Prime Minister' to use such language. The Congress also dubbed Modi as 'arrogant' and charged him with bringing the debate to 'the lowest level'.
