Without naming any political party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said the youth will not tolerate the culture of arrogance, corruption and oppression.

In the same breath, while addressing farmers at the Kisan Kalyan rally, Prime Minister Modi said: "The youth of today will not tolerate the culture of arrogance, corruption and oppression. Whether it is cycle (Samajwadi Party) or elephant (Bahujan Samaj Party), the country has understood all the theatrics with their ulterior motives."

In a veiled attack on Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Modi said the Opposition "galey pad gaye (breathed down his neck)" instead of justifying the need for a no-confidence motion against his government.

In a scathing attack, Gandhi in his speech in the No-Confidence Motion debate in Lok Sabha yesterday accused the central government on several fronts. However, soon after he ended his speech, Gandhi walked up to the Prime Minister and hugged him.
