Rahul asks Aiyar to apologise for 'neech' remarks against PM

Rahul asks Aiyar to apologise for 'neech' remarks against PM”

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

Modi said the Congress had insulted him even when he was the chief minister of Gujarat.

Aiyar stoked a controversy by calling Modi a "bahut neech kisam ka aadmi" who is practising "dirty politics".

Modi was quick to retaliate. "This is nothing but a Mughalai mindset". Then why is he being called "neech", he asked. "The people of Gujarat will give a fitting answer to such deplorable language".

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the Congress' problem runs deeper than a single remark. Modi said the sort of language that the Congress leaders were using was "unacceptable" in democracy and was a result of "dynastic mentality". "Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said".

Aiyar was soon forced to respond to the allegations. "I hold no post in the party, so I can reply to the prime minister in his language".

However, he went on to add: "I meant low level when I said "neech". He also clarified that he thinks in English while he speaks in Hindi. So if it has some other meaning then I apologize, " he told reporters after his remarks in the morning triggered a political storm. The Congress too strongly disapproved of Aiyar's remarks, with party vice president Rahul Gandhi saying he and the party expected the leader to tender an apology.

Aiyar said it was the first prime minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who turned Dr Ambedkar's wish into reality and it was not correct to badmouth the Nehru-Gandhi family. "There had been attempts to undermine his role, but such attempts were unsuccessful". "Baba Saheb Ambedkar's contribution to nation building is very important, there had been attempts to undermine his role, but such attempts were unsuccessful", he said. He also said that the PM is devoid of any manners.

Translation: "The current [Central] government considers delay in implementation of schemes criminal negligence". The prime minister, while inaugurating the Ambedkar International Centre had earlier today hit out at the Congress, saying parties seeking votes in the name of the architect of the Indian Constitution's name tried to erase his contribution to nation building.
