Dhoraji: Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi on Friday fired a fresh salvo at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, saying his speech reminded him of proverb "empty vessels make the most noise" and his poetry was a vain attempt to hide Centre's failures.
"I listened to the speech of Prime Minister yesterday and I remembered the saying 'empty vessels make the most noise'," Modi said addressing a function, where Congress leader Vitthal Radadia and his son joined the BJP.
Radadia had hit the headlines last year after he was caught on camera brandishing a gun at a toll-booth and was then condemned by the BJP.
While praising leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj for her reply, Modi said that the Prime Minister's speech had no road map for development and his reply in Rajya Sabha today showed that "his attacking posture has died within just twenty-four hours".
"People would have expected that Prime Minister will speak about how he wants to take this country forward, what is the roadmap, what are the programmes, but nothing of this sort was there in the speech," Modi said.
