"Prime Minister should have maintained dignity of the high office he holds. There is no problem if he targets previous governments when he is in the country. But he should have refrained from doing so on foreign soil," party spokesman Meem Afzal said.

Afzal added it is not proper for PM Modi to rake up domestic politics abroad despite repeated uproar by the Opposition for his earlier such remarks.

The Prime Minister, who is the UAE, stated, "I have got some problems in legacy. I cannot take only the good points and leave aside the problems... Some things were stalled due to the indecisiveness and lethargy of the governments (in the last)... It is my priority to kickstart those things".

Noting that the Prime Minister had visited the historic Sheikh Zayed Grand mosque, the world's third largest, during the visit, Afzal said it would be good if he visited a mosque in India too.

Another Congress spokesman Sanjay Jha tweeted, "It is abominable that PM Modi continues his pathetic lowbrow jibes at opposition party when abroad. A huge embarrassment"
