Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at a rally Sunday said "the BJP leader from Gujarat" is always talking about the Gujarat model of development but "several question marks were raised over the Gujarat model of development".
Without naming Modi, Manmohan Singh also said it has brought down the standard of political discourse and asked the people to "think seriously" what the party, which believes in "demeaning others", will do to the country.
