Congress urges Narendra Modi to take action against leaders using foul language

  • Aiyar's 'neech' remark, aggressive BJP and Rahul Gandhi's master stroke

BJP senior leader and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley also called the expulsion of Mani Shankar Aiyar from the party a strategy and tweeted, "Mani Shankar Aiyar's "Neech" -attack on Prime Minister- a deliberate casteist statement, a convenient apology, a strategic suspension".

Modi initially mentioned the " neech" jibe by Aiyar, for which the Congress has suspended him, and said the people's reply would be known when the votes were counted on December 18. "That will help in restoring the dignity of our political discourse", party's senior spokesperson Anand Sharma said. What does it say about the office of a prime minister who indulges in such deception?

"But after I became Prime Minister, this man (Aiyar) went to Pakistan and met some Pakistanis". No one in the Congress can use demeaning language against the PM. When Prime Minister Modi raised this issue at an election rally in Gujarat, Aiyar was forced to apologise, but he gave a lame defence that he did not know the exact Hindi word for "low". Now, how does being low and insulting a person typically represent the "Mughalai mindset"? "There is no future for India if there is no Congress", he said. Let them keep calling me "Neech" we will not respond. "They (panelists) are all optimist and that we can move forward when Modi sahab is there, but I don't think so". In our hearts we do not have this mindset and want to congratulate them for theirs. "The PM himself in the last Assembly elections had called Congress president Sonia Gandhi, one of the tallest leaders in India, an Italian Jersey Cow". The Congress has a different culture and heritage.

Speaking at a press conference in Ahmedabad on Friday, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said the Bharataiya Janata Party (BJP) should follow its vice-president Rahul Gandhi's example and rein in motormouths in its party.

"Will the prime minister take action against his colleagues for using foul and abusive language against Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and other party leaders". "I meant low level when I said "neech", I don't think he is low born...if it has some other meaning then I apologise", he said.

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