Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday rejected Prime Minister Narendra Modi's charge that the UPA government led by him was "remote - controlled" by Sonia Gandhi for 10 years.
"It is wrong to say that my government was remote - controlled, " he told a press conference here when asked about Modi's charge at an election meeting in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday.
"The Congress government functioned in a way that the party and the government worked in sync on the stage.
And I think that the reason for the success of my government was that there was no difference of opinion between the government and the party, " he said.
Modi, while addressing a public meeting in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa, mocked at United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chairperson Sonia Gandhi saying "for 10 years, there was a remote - controlled government in Delhi with Madam (Sonia Gandhi) controlling it. "
The Congress is out of power in the state since 2003 while the BJP is seeking a fourth consecutive term by winning the election to the 230 member legislative assembly.
The state will have one - day voting on November 28.
Counting of votes will take place on December 11.
