New Delhi: Soon after refusing to accept Aakash tablet sent by Kapil Sibal, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi accused the Union HRD Minister of misusing public funds and trying to ‘bribe’ him with a couple of computers.
"I will not be quiet after this bribe," he said with an attempt to turn this into another political opportunity.

From past few days, the two leaders have been squabbling over Aakash, developed by the Centre.

Earlier, Modi had ridiculed Sibal for not meeting deadlines on the much-awaited Aakash tablet and asked where the Aakash (sky) was - perhaps still in the sky.

Sibal immediately responded by sending him (Modi) two Aakash tablets, but it came back undelivered.

Later, Sibal said that Modi’s move to return (Aakash) shows that he doesn't want... education in Gujarat.

According to reports, Sibal and Modi were in fact were scheduled to meet at the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad on September 22, but both begged off saying they were too busy.
