In a pungent attack on Narendra Modi for his oft repeated "recounting minister" jibe at him, Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram today called the Gujarat Chief Minister an "encounter minister".

When reporters sought his reaction on Modi repeatedly calling him "recounting minister", Chidambaram retorted that is because he is an "encounter minister", apparently referring to the alleged fake encounters that occurred in Gujarat during Modi rule.

Chidambaram won the 2009 Lok Sabha election from Sivaganga constituency in Tamil Nadu by a margin of about 3,500 votes and the counting process was mired in controversy.

Modi has been referring to Chidamabaram as "recounting minister" in his election rallies.
