New Delhi, Dec 11 (IBNS): Actor-turned Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Shatrughan Sinha took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing the latter for communalising the atmosphere by bringing Pakistan in the campaign for the Gujarat poll.

Sinha's comment came days after Modi accused the Congress for conspiring with Pakistan to stop BJP from coming to power in Gujarat.

Lashing out at Modi, Sinha tweeted: "Hon'ble Sir! Just to win elections anyhow, and that too at the fag end of the process, is it a must to come up with & endorse new, unsubstantiated & unbelievable stories everyday against political opponents? Now linking them to Pak High Commissioner & Generals?! Incredible!."

In a follow up tweet, Sinha said: "Sir! Instead of new twists & turns, stories & cover ups, let's go straight to the promises that we made, regarding housing, development, employment of youth, health, "Vikas model". Lets stop communalising the atmosphere & go back to healthy politics & healthy elections. Jai Hind!"

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's allegation during his Gujarat poll campaign on Sunday -- that Pakistan was trying to meddle in Gujarat elections -- has given rise to a lot of debate.

Modi raised the issue of the dinner thrown by Mani Shankar Aiyar and suggested that the Congress was conspiring with Pakistani leaders to prevent the BJP from winning the election in Gujarat, where the party has been in power for 22 years.

Ex-Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday attacked current PM Narendra Modi and accused him of spreading "falsehood and canards" in a bid to win the Gujarat Assembly polls.

He asked Modi to 'apologise' to the nation.

In a statement released by the ex-PM, he has denied all allegations made by Modi that he and others were invited to a dinner at Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar's residence with Pakistani diplomats and discussed the Gujarat election.

"I am deeply pained and anguished by the falsehood and canards being spread to score political points in a lost cause by none less than Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi," Singh said in his statement.

Sadly and regrettably, Modi is setting a dangerous precedent by his insatiable desire to tarnish every Constitutional office including that of a former Prime Minister and Army Chief," Singh said.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his recent comment on Pakistan and said he should speak more about Gujarat elections and the state's development than about other nations.

Addressing an election rally, Gandhi said: "He keeps speaking about China, Pakistan and Japan. I feel that this is the election of Gujarat state and he should speak about this state and its development too."
