Rahul Gandhi asks Aiyar to apologise for ‘neech’ remarks against PM

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday asked senior party leader Mani Shankar Aiyar to apologise for his “neech” barb against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Expressing his thoughts on Twitter, Gandhi said that it is not the Congress party’s culture to use such language against political opponents. “BJP and Prime Minister routinely use filthy language to attack the Congress party. The Congress has a different culture and heritage. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyer to address the Prime Minister. Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said,” Gandhi tweeted.
Later Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar apologised for using the word “neech” (low) for Prime Minister Narendra Modi but maintained that he had not referred to him as “low-born”. “I never meant low-born. There is a difference in English language between words ‘low’ and ”low-born’. But in Hindi if low means low-born, then I tender apology,” he told reporters after his remarks in the morning triggered a political storm. Asked about Rahul Gandhi’s tweet that he did not appreciate Aiyar’s words to address the Prime Minister, Aiyar said he could talk about it only after meeting Gandhi.
