Often under opposition attack for his silence, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday used an Urdu couplet to get back at critics.

"Hazaron jawabo se achchi hai khamoshi meri, na jaane kitne sawalo ki aabru rakhe. (My silence is better than a thousand answers, it keeps intact the honour of innumerable questions)," Singh said.

The Prime Minister's remarks came outside Parliament on a day he read out amid din in both the Houses his statement on coal block allocations.
