Our Prime Minister is alert, sensitive and bold : Pranab Mukherjee to Jayalaltihaa

 Chennai, Apr 9:

Senior Congress leader and Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today dismissed AIADMK Supremo J Jayalaltihaa's critical remarks against the Prime Minister and said Dr Manmohan Singh is ''alert, sensitive and bold''.

When asked about Ms Jayalalithaa's remarks that the Prime Minister was silent, not able to act, weak and ineffectual, Mr Pranab said ''it is not correct.'' ''Our Prime Minister takes decisions, is alert, sensitive and bold,'' he told reporters here, on Ms Jayalalithaa's remarks that the country needed a strong Prime Minister.

Ms Jayalalithaa had told a private channel during campaigning that she supported social activist Anna Hazare's demand for a Jan Lokpal Bill and said ''beyond that we need a strong government at the Centre and Prime Minister to implement the bill and wipe out corruption.'' Calling Manmohan Singh a silent, unable to act, weak and ineffectual, Ms Jayalalitha said, ''as long as we have a Prime Minister like this, the Jan Lokpal Bill would be of no use.'' The AIADMK supremo said the county needed a strong Prime Minister who should be willing, determined and capable of enforcing law to wipe out corruption.
