New Delhi, Aug 11: Congress on Tuesday, Aug 11 said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's praise of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav might be "short-lived".

"The PM's praise may be short-lived because today the SP has fully joined in every stand that we had taken in the Upper House. Perhaps the PM's praise is pre-mature; his joy should be short-lived. Secondly what Yadav said orally, obviously there are so many parties which do not agree with that", Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.

Besides, he said that Yadav and his own party by their conduct has shown that they do not agree with the stand of the Government of India.

He said that they walked out today from the Rajya Sabha. Singhvi's remarks came soon after the PM hit out at Congress for "misusing" Parliament to stop the country's growth and hailed SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for "understanding this conspiracy" and working to end the logjam in the House.

Addressing the last scheduled BJP parliamentary party meet in the Monsoon session, Modi spoke of "some people", a reference to top Congress brass, who are working to stall economic growth.
