Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat said on Tuesday Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be “ashamed” for making a remark on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi by playing on the word “earthquake” even as tremors were felt in the mountainous state a day before.

“Narendra Modi should be ashamed of himself for making fun of the earthquake that hit Uttarakhand,” Rawat tweeted after the Prime Minister’s speech.

During PM Narendra Modi’s motion of thanks speech in Lok Sabha, he took a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s “earthquake” remark, saying that the nation finally felt the tremors on Monday.

“I was wondering why the earthquake came. When someone see ‘SEVA’ or any positive virtue in the word ‘SCAM’ then mother earth would definitely become upset,” Modi said.
