Criticising Manmohan Singh for saying that the "toughest" moment as Prime Minister was when he was attempting to push through the India-US nuclear deal, BJP firebrand leader Narendra Modi on Saturday asked him whether he was not worried during the Mumbai terror attack.

"I want to ask him that when hundreds were killed in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack for seven days was he not worried?" asked Modi, addressing an election rally here.

He also said the Prime Minister's reported statement that Muslims have the first right to India's resources was a case of vote bank politics.

"The Prime Minister in a written statement has said that Muslims have the first right to India's resources. Is this not vote bank politics? Is it not an insult to the Constitution?"

"This is a most despicable statement of vote bank politics. Do you feel the Prime Minister is your representative? He has failed to provide security and basic amenities to the people of Assam that he represents in Parliament," the Gujarat Chief Minister said.

"Our prime ministerial candidate LK Advani says it's the poor of the country irrespective of religion, caste, language or region have the first right to the nation's wealth. This is the language of development," Modi said, adding,"Our leader clubs all Indians together, but Congress sees them as groups."
