Both the leaders must be speaking about the 10 years of the previous UPA government, when rampant corruption had plagued the country, he said.
Manmohan Singh who was in Ahmedabad earlier today described the BJP-led government's demonetisation exercise as a reckless step and said scrapping higher value currency notes was organised loot and legalised plunder.
"This is not Manmohan Singhji's language," the Minister for Law and Justice told reporters reacting to Mr Singh's criticism of notes ban.
"He was Prime Minister for 10 years and was a man of few words. This is not his language. So it appears that like Rahul Gandhi, somebody is writing the script for Manmohan Singhji nowadays," the Minister said.
"The way Manmohan Singhji and Rahul Gandhi are speaking, they are remembering the 10 years of the previous UPA government," Mr Prasad said.
