Share

Congress has suspended Mani Shankar Aiyar from the the primary membership of the party for his "neech" comments made for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter saying, "BJP and PM routinely use filthy language to attack the Congress party".

He said he was not surprised at Aiyar's derogatory comment against Modi, as it had been the culture of the Congress. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mani Shankar Aiyar to address the Prime Minister. "Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said".

"They can not bring themselves to terms with the fact that a person from a less privileged background became the Prime Minister of India".

"Are we going to integrate them (Muslims)?"

Amid the development, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi asked Mr. Aiyar to apologise to Mr. Modi.

Reacting to Aiyar's remark, Congress President-to-be Rahul Gandhi on Thursday asked the senior leader to apologise for what he had said.

"Mani Shankar Aiyar today said I belong to "neech" caste, I am "neech" (vile), this is an insult to Gujarat", he told an election rally. So now, the darbaris (courtiers) of the Nehru-Gandhi family would call our PM neech (vile) for asking these questions?

Aiyar claimed that it was the country's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru who recognized Ambedkar's potential. "They can keep their language we will do our work". While PM Modi construed Aiyar's remark as a casteist slur, the Congress too disassociated itself from the seemingly personal attack against the PM. "It is an insult to poor people of India and Gujarat". "They called me "Maut Ka Saudagar" and wanted to jail me", he said. "The word I used has different meanings and the meaning Prime Minister Modi is making out is not what I meant". There is a difference in English language between words "low" and "low-born". He further said, Congress will get the answer for making such a remark against "the son of Gujarat" in the upcoming polls. He said, if "neech" has any other connotations, he is sorry for using the term.
