Lucknow, Feb 11: In a reply to Prime Minister Narendra Modi 'raincoat' jibe against his predecessor Manmohan Singh, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that the PM likes to peep into others' bathrooms.
While addressing a press meet, Rahul added that PM Modi also likes to search information on google. This again was a reply to what PM Modi said at a rally on Friday. Taking a dig at the Congress VP, Prime Minister said that most of the jokes on google are about Rahul.
"There is not a single black mark against him despite all the corruption. Only Doctor Saab (Manmohan Singh) knows how to bathe with a raincoat in the bathroom," PM Modi said at the Rajya Sabha to attack the previous United Progressive Alliance's regime at the Centre for its alleged role in various corruption cases.
Rahul attended the press meet with his alliance partner and chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav. The Samajwadi Party and the Congress have forged an alliance to fight the assembly elections in UP. On Saturday, polling for the first phase took place in the state.
Both Akhilesh and Rahul launched the alliance's common minimum programme in front of the reporters. Akhilesh had an advice for the PM. The UP CM asked Modi not to get too angry.

"Prime Minister's strategy is distraction. When he can't answer questions, then he starts distracting. Truth is that in two-and-a-half years, he has failed," added Rahul.
