Party spokesman Shakeel Ahmed's sharp reaction came after the Prime Minister hit back at the Congress president for her accusations that NDA dispensation was showing "obstinate arrogance" in Parliament and that it was a government by "one person".
      
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi is holding a responsible position. At least once in a while he should speak truth," Ahmed said, terming as "totally wrong" the impression sought to be created by him that Gandhi was interfering in the day-to-day affairs of the UPA government.
      
Noting that it was Gandhi who had brought the Congress to power, he added it was natural for the party to tell the government about which policies and principles to follow and ask it to implement them. He recalled that the Congress under Gandhi had asked the government to go for the Right to Information Act, MGNREGA as also loan waiver for farmers.
    
Speaking to a news agency about criticism that under him all powers were concentrated in the PMO, PM Modi said,"Your question is loaded. It would have been better if this question had been asked when an unconstitutional authority was sitting above the constitutional authority and exercising power over the PMO". He was apparently referring to the Congress president.
