New Delhi: After six days of rigourous protests against the horrendous gang rape of a 23-year-old girl, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had finally broke his silence on Monday and addressed the nation while appealing them to maintain calm and peace. But instead of healing the wounded hearts of the protesters, the Prime Minister’s words have left them more infuriated.

A minor gaffe during the recording of PM’s speech has created panic and had put the government in an embarrassing position.

After finishing his speech the PM asked, probably the cameraman filming him, "theek hai?"

The 45 second long footage which was mistakenly not edited before the statement was sent to the media emerged as a matter of mockery on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The netizens on Twitter and Facebook took jibe at the "theek hai" part of the speech and took the words as a show of political insensitivity.

Using the hashtag #theekhai, the twitteraties ridiculed the Prime Minister and the Congress-led government for their political ‘indifference’ towards the sensitive issue rocking the country these days.

PM's Address To Nation

My fellow citizens,

There is genuine and justified anger and anguish at the ghastly crime of gang-rape committed last Sunday in Delhi. As a father of three daughters myself, I feel as strongly about this as each one of you.

My wife, my family and I are all joined in our concern for the young woman who was the victim of this heinous crime.

We are constantly monitoring her medical condition. Let us all pray for her and her loved ones during this critical time.

I also feel deeply sad at the turn of events leading to clashes between protesters and police forces. Anger at this crime is justified but violence will serve no purpose. I appeal to all concerned citizens to maintain peace and calm. I assure you that we will make all possible efforts to ensure security and safety of women in this country. The Home Minister has already spoken about the steps being taken.
We will examine without delay not only the responses to this terrible crime but also all aspects concerning the safety of women and children and punishment to those who commit these monstrous crimes. Our Government will keep you informed of the steps we are taking and the processes we are following.

I appeal to all sections of society to maintain peace and help us in our efforts.
