Abusing Modi is culture of Congress: Shah

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today lambasted Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar for using the word "neech aadmi" (vile man) for him, claiming he was targeted over his caste.

Aiyar's comment came after the Prime Minister took a swipe at Rahul during the inauguration of the Dr. Ambedkar International Centre by calling the Congress' would be President a Shiva devotee.

Expressing his thoughts on Twitter, Gandhi said that it is not the Congress party's culture to use such language against political opponents.

Modi, who inaugurated the centre in the heart of the national capital in Janpath, also took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi's comment on being a Shiva devotee and said some parties talked more of Baba Bhole (Lord Shiva) than Babasaheb.

Earlier in the day, Aiyar called Modi a "neech aadmi" (vile man), who did "dirty politics", kicking up a row on the last day of campaigning for the first phase of the Gujarat Assembly polls.

I was actually relieved there wasn't a pro-am because I thought the rest would help but this morning is even worse than it was yesterday.

Modi, during an election rally in Surat, hit back at Aiyar calling his comments "insulting" that represent "nothing but a Mughalai mindset".

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".

He also said Aiyar's comment had full approval of Congress' would be President Rahul Gandhi. "But in Hindi if low means low-born, then I tender apology", he told reporters. Yes, I am from the poor section of society and will spend every moment of my life to work for the poor, Dalits, tribals and backward classes. "This is nothing but a mindset that of the Mughals", PM Modi said. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyer to address the Prime Minister. In English there's a clear distinction between "low" and "low born". So if it has some other meaning or it means "low-born" only, then I apologise for the wrong translation.

The Congress party has had a lead over the BJP in the election campaign for the Gujarat elections up until now.

To this end, Aiyar said he had never called the prime minister a "Chaiwala", adding, "You can go on the internet and check all the videos".
