Mani Shankar Aiyar, the senior Congress leader who made sensational comments on the PM Modi by calling him as a ‘neech’ aadmi was suspended from the party.
The Congress party had also issued a show cause notice to Mani Shankar Aiyar over his insensitive remarks about Modi.
The senior Congress leader, earlier took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and called him a “neech aadmi” (vile man), who does “dirty politics”.
“He (Modi) is ‘neech kism ka aadmi’ (a vile man) who has no ‘sabhyata’ (civility),” he said, attacking Modi after Modi accused the Congress of seeking votes in B R Ambedkar’s name but trying to wipe off his contribution to building India.
Not happy with his personal remarks on Modi, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi asked him to tender an apology for his remarks and Aiyar had apologized.
“BJP and PM routinely use filthy language to attack Congress party. Congress has a different culture and heritage. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyer to address the PM. Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said,” Rahul Gandhi said.
Respecting the words of Rahul Gandhi, Aiyar apologised but still defended his remark on Modi, stating that Hindi was not his mother tongue and that he meant low level when he used the term “neech”.
“I meant low level when I said ‘neech’, I think in English when I speak in Hindi as Hindi is not my mother tongue. So if it has some other meaning then I apologise,” he said.
“Why was PM taking a jibe at Congress and Rahul Gandhi at the inauguration of Ambedkar International Centre? Everyday PM is using foul language against our leaders. I am a freelance ‘Congressi’, I hold no post in the party, so I can reply to PM in his language,” he added.
