New Delhi: Taking a jibe at former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said that the Congress has forgotten the time of the 'mute Prime Minister', adding that Narendra Modi communicates with people on a regular basis.

"Prime Minister Modi communicates with people through social media and 'Mann Ki Baat'. Time of the mute Prime Minister has long gone. It seems that the Congress has forgotten that," said BJP general secretary Ram Madhav.

Madhav's statement comes in light of repeated demands by the Opposition that Prime Minister Modi break his silence on the various charges against ministers of the NDA Government.
