Noting that PM Modi had toured 25 countries, Kharge asked him to 'visit' Parliament, as he slammed the 'one man show' in the BJP-led government at the Centre. "When adjournment motion under Rule 56 came up, Prime Minister was not present in the House. He was in his office, but did not come; in the same way when major issues were being discussed, he was not there, when opposition parties boycotted, he never called for meeting to find a solution," Kharge told reporters here.

He said, “The Prime Minister had no time to be present in the House and no time to speak when allegations were being levelled against his Ministers, ... but he visits Australia, America's Madison Square and speaks there. He visits Dubai and addresses a gathering there in a stadium for hours together..."

Kharge also took a dig at PM Modi for making 'election like' speeches without any 'weightage' that a speech made by a Prime Minister should have, and criticised him for speaking negatively about past governments.

"He goes there (foreign countries) and makes comments on previous Prime Ministers for not making visit during their tenure, is it to be spoken? "....he is a tourist Minister, tourist Prime Minister; in one year and four-and-half months, he has visited 25 countries, which other Prime Minister has done this?" he added.
