New Delhi: CPI on Thursday criticised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for attacking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Independence Day, saying he should have avoided a speech meant for "street-corner meeting".

"We saw Modi addressing an Independence Day gathering as if he was speaking at a street-corner meeting. He should have avoided that," CPI national secretary D Raja said here.

"Independence Day does not belong to one party or one government. It belongs to the people and it is a moment of joy and celebration," he said.

Modi should have addressed the people of Gujarat "in a dignified manner explaining what his government has done or wants to do".

In his Independence Day speech in Bhuj, Modi talked of a 'serial of Saas, Bahu and Damaad', an oblique reference to Robert Vadra's relationship with Sonia Gandhi and Khurshid wondering whether Modi was a "villain (Khalnayak)" and slammed the Prime Minister for India's "weak and feeble" response to provocations from Pakistan and China.
