"On Modi's Independence (Day) Speech, I and Advaniji are on the same page. Modi's abrasive hunger for power has no limits," Singh said on twitter.

The Congress general secretary's remarks come a day after Modi attacked the Prime Minister in Bhuj in Gujarat, which also drew an indirect rebuke from Advani.

"I heard the Prime Minister today...Today on Independence Day, without criticizing anybody, we all should realize that India has unlimited potential for the future," Advani had said, striking a completely different note from Modi.

Backing Advani, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had said there are 364 other days in the year to comment on the Prime Minister and that leaders should try to avoid politics on the occasion of Independence Day.

In his Independence Day speech, Modi had blamed the Prime Minister for not taking a strong stand on Pakistan, failing to revive the economy and for massive corruption in the country.
