Aiyar apologises for Neech remark, says Hindi not his mother tongue

In a damage-control move, the Congress on Thursday night suspended senior party leader Mani Shankar Aiyar from its primary membership and slapped a show cause notice on him for his "neech" remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which has mushroomed into a massive controversy just ahead of the Gujarat polls. He himself was an officer of the Indian Foreign Service and also a minister in the Congress government. There is a difference in English language between words "low" and "low-born".

"Modi was targeted by Aiyar because he had questioned why Dr B R Ambedkar was given Bharat Ratna in 1990 when he had died in 1956", Prasad said.

"I never meant "low born".

Hours before the end of campaigning for the first phase of Gujarat assembly elections, Mani Shankar Aiyar once again did what the Congress was trying to avoid in Gujarat. I never did anything bad that made people of Gujarat hang their heads in shame. "Have I done any "neech" work?" He had also pointed out that when "Modi-ji was in the opposition, he used to speak with disrespect about the PM". "This is a Mughal mentality where if such a person (who comes from a humble background) wears good clothes in a village, they have a problem", Modi said. "You may call me neech for that, but I will continue on this path", Modi said. Slamming Aiyar, Jaitley said his neech remark against the Prime Minister "displays a mindset that only one elite family can be a ruler and the rest are only the neech". He explained that he had once called then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee "nalayak" (useless), but after he faced political backlash, he found that it was not an accurate translation of "incompetent" and he had to apologise.

He said Gujarat will teach a lesson to the Congress on December 18, the day votes would be counted. These are some words or phrases the Congress has used for PM Modi in the past.

In the end, a franchise quarterback was never found. . "There is definitely not certainty". "I love Hue", Bitonio said. This is a performance-based business, and I get it. "I don't look at it as a power struggle ", Jackson said.

"The Congress party has lost its mental balance as it knows it is going to lose this election".

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".

He said, the Congress had forgotten public decorum after a string of disappointing losses in these states. "Can Modiji (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) ever show such conviction?" he added.

"That is not my way".
