Aiyar's 'neech' remark reeks of feudal arrogance, says BJP

Modi who was addressing an election rally in Surat said Aiyar's comments were an 'insult' to Gujarat Aiyar faces retort from PM, rebuke from Rahul for 'neech aadmi' remark

The comment had backfired on the Congress, as the BJP gained momentum from this statement, and launched its massive "Chai pe Charcha" (chat over tea) campaign. And the reason behind this was party's sensible campaign against BJP and PM Modi on the grass root issues.

Modi said some parties were seen to talk more about Baba Bhole (Lord Shiva) than Babasaheb.

Prime Minister Modi had said the Nehru-Gandhi family did the greatest injustice to Babasaheb Ambedkar and Sardar Patel.

At a rally today in Surat, he said that the PM lacked civility. "It is an insult to poor people of India and Gujarat".

Aiyar had earlier in the day attacked the prime minister for saying that the Congress tried to erase the contribution of BR Ambedkar in nation-building.

Congress today suspended Mani Shankar Aiyar after he called PM Modi "Neech insaan". "They can keep their language, we will continue doing our work". "Please do not respond to the remark even on Twitter", he said.

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". "People will answer them through the ballot box".

Reacting to Modi's jibe at Rahul, Aiyar told media: "Modi is a very cheap type of a person, he has no manners and always has a tendency to play petty politics". Hence, Congress had to face humiliating defeat.

On 5 December, when Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination for the Congress president's post, Aiyar had referred to the succession process during the Mughal rule while describing the election.

Condemning Aiyar's remarks, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said his remark reeked of Congress' feudal arrogance and sycophancy. These are some words or phrases the Congress has used for PM Modi in the past. Prasad said the comment reflects the "feudalistic and arrogant thinking" of the Congress party.

Disapproving Aiyar's comment, Rahul tweeted: "BJP and PM routinely use filthy language to attack the Congress party".
