Aiyar faces retort from PM, rebuke from Rahul for 'neech aadmi' remark

Not a Hindi speaker, messed up in translation: Aiyar

Meanwhile, this was not the first time that Aiyar's remarks would have put Congress in a spot.

The Prime Minister made the remark while inaugurating the Ambedkar International Centre in New Delhi that was conceived 23 years ago.

"Mujhko lagta hai ki ye aadmi bahut neech kisam ka aadmi hai, isme koi sabhyata nahi hai".

Referring to PM Modi, he said, "This person is a "Neech Aadmi". "This is a Mughal mentality where if such a person (who comes from a humble background) wears good clothes in a village, they have a problem", he said.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday asked party leader Mani Shankar Aiyar to apologise to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his 'neech aadmi' remark saying it was not the culture of the Congress Party. "They can keep their language, we will do our work", Modi told an election rally. He had also pointed out that when "Modi-ji was in the opposition, he used to speak with disrespect about the PM". Whatever I say they want to misinterpret.

While calling for dialogue with the neighbouring country, Aiyar said, "We need to work out ways of consolidating our own nationhood and one very important aspect of that is somehow creating a relationship with Islamabad which will enable Muslims living in our country not to be held responsible for what Hafiz Saeed does or did or will do". "That is the difference between us and them". But answer them on December 9 and 14 (voting days)... Then PM candidate Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders went to town using Aiyar's comments to portray Congress as an elitist party that does not care about the poor. "Shriman (Mr) Mani Shankar Aiyar today said that Modi is of "neech" (lower) caste and is "neech" (vile)". Hence, Congress had to face humiliating defeat.

Mr Aiyar, who has been with the party for almost three decades, is a longtime loyalist of the Gandhi family.

Earlier too, in 2014, when Modi was elected as prime minister, Aiyar had made scathing remarks on him by mocking Modi's ambitions and had said that a place will be identified for the Gujarat chief minister to distribute tea.

"The Congress party has suspended Mani Shankar Aiyar from the primary membership of the party and served a show cause notice on him", Surjewala tweeted. The prime minister also accused the Congress leadership of having a "Mughal" mindset.

"Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said", Rahul added, even if has used the opportunity to hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party for "routinely " using "filthy language to attack the Congress party". Everyday Prime Minister Modi is using foul language against our leaders.
