    Some commentators accused the prime minister

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Some commentators accused the prime minister of not only being detached from reality, but also of being emotionally cold.

    It's OK. You could omit "also". Sometimes, it's not necessary to use the complete "not only ... but also ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is the following sentence correct?
