Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday launched a fresh attack on Congress for the recent Parliament logjam and scuttling crucial bills like the GST, saying the 'hawalabaaz' (corrupt) acted only as roadblocks.

Modi said the 'hawalabaazon ki jamaat' was totally flustered and on shaky grounds after the NDA government made tough laws on black money and it was why they created logjam in Parliament and did not let key bills to be passed.

Modi's remarks came after Congress president Sonia Gandhi accused him of "hawabaazi (empty talk)" earlier this week.
