New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took a playful dig at his Australian counterpart, telling lawmakers that it could be Tony Abbott's way of getting at them by making them listen to three world leaders within a week.

"I'm the third head of the government you are listening to this week, I do not know how you are doing this! May be, this is Prime Minister Abbott's way of shirtfronting you," Modi said opening his speech with Abbott's now-infamous threat to "shirtfront" Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The lawmakers erupted into laughter and even Abbott was seen chuckling after Modi's comment.
