PM Modi said the people who haggle do not hesitate to pay bills at restaurants.
"Not just this. When we go to a showroom to buy a sari, we don't bargain. But when it comes to the poor, we just cannot resist bargaining," PM Modi said on his monthly radio programme, 'Mann Ki Baat'.
He said people have a habit of bargaining for small amounts with vegetable sellers, small shopkeepers, autorickshaw drivers and in fact anyone who earns through sheer hard work.
"Have you ever wondered what a poor man goes through?" PM Modi asked and added that the poor feel hurt when their honesty is being questioned.
