The comments from Singh, who is Minister of State in the PMO as well as Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), came after Gandhi, vice-president of Congress, took a dig at the Prime Minister, saying that after his tours abroad, he should spend time with farmers of the country.

"It is very frivolous and very childish. And all of us, every Indian, should be proud of Prime Minister's visit abroad. The Prime Minister has gone abroad in order to discharge very important national duty and the manner in which he has been received there, the kind of enthusiastic response he has received, should make each one of us proud," Singh told reporters here. Singh said people were not aware of Gandhi's whereabouts during his absence from the political scene for 56 days while everyone knew where the Prime Minister was Today.
