Treasury and Opposition members nearly came to blows in the Lok Sabha on Friday when the Union health minister condemned in "no uncertain words" the "outlandish" remarks made by the former Congress chief against the prime minister.

"When I condemned Rahul Gandhi for his remarks against the prime minister, the Congress MPs came to my seat, tried to attack me and snatched papers from me," Vardhan told reporters outside Parliament.

Asserting that the language used by Rahul against Modi is condemnable, he said such language is not expected from the son of a former prime minister and demanded that Gandhi should apologise.

During a rally for the Delhi Assembly polls, the Congress leader had reportedly said that "youth would beat Modi with sticks over the lack of jobs".

On Thursday, the prime minister took a dig at Rahul for his remarks, saying he would increase the number of Surya Namaskars (a yoga exercise) so that his back can bear the attack.
