Mani Shankar Aiyar suspended from primary membership of Congress Party

Mughal mentality, 'insult' to Gujarat: Modi on Mani Shankar's 'neech' barb Mani Shankar Aiyar apologizes for 'neech aadmi' remark against Modi

Chief Amit Shah on Thursday said he was not surprised by Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar's "low-born" remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi as this was the culture of the Congress Party.

"He [Mr. Modi] is a neech kism ka aadmi who has no sabhyata [civility]", Mr. Aiyar said after Mr. Modi accused the Congress of seeking votes in the name of B.R. Ambedkar but trying to erase his contribution to building India. He wrote, "BJP and PM routinely use filthy language to attack the Congress party".

"The Congress has served a showcause notice to Mani Shankar Aiyar and suspended him from the primary membership of the party", Surjewala said.

"They called us donkeys, neech, gandi naali ke keede...the people of Gujarat will give a befitting reply to such derogatory language". These are some words or phrases the Congress has used for PM Modi in the past.

Muslim man hacked and set on fire alleging 'love jihad'
Internet services have been suspended in parts of the state and people have been urged to stop sharing the video. He allegedly took Afrazul to his agriculture farm on the pretext of hiring him for a construction work.

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". The prime minister also requested BJP workers and supporters not to respond to Aiyar's remark. "Then why are they calling me Neech?".

Reporters got around to Aiyar at a function in Delhi's WWF Auditorium Hall and asked him about Modi's attack and Gandhi's suggestion to him to apologize.

"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. The second phase of voting will take place on December 14. There is a difference in English language between words "low" and "low-born".

Meanwhile, Aiyar defended his remark on PM even as he apologised, stating that Hindi was not my mother tongue and that he meant low level when he used the term "neech". Whatever I say they want to misinterpret. He further said, Congress will get the answer for making such a remark against "the son of Gujarat" in the upcoming polls.
