"Mani Shankar Aiyar told people when he visited Pakistan- remove Modi from the way and then see what happens to India-Pakistan peace".
Of course, all hell broke loose with the PM himself taking Aiyar's statement out of context, for maximum theatrics of tragedy and farce, at his election rally in Gujarat with added relish and masala of falsehoods and claims. "Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said". "What is the need of doing such dirty politics on such an occasion?"
"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.
Congress leader Anand Sharma on Saturday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's campaign rallies in the wake of the Gujarat Assembly polls, adding he and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Chief Amit Shah had lowered the dignity of their respective positions and political debates. He had called PM Modi "neech" and after being admonished by Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, clarified that he may have misspoken as Hindi was not his mother tongue.
"They can call me "Neech"- 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 OBC communities". "Congress leaders are speaking in a language that is not acceptable in a democracy". Let them keep calling me "Neech" we will not respond.
This was the reason, Rahul Gandhi used issues like GST, demonetisation, jobs, education and health in a bid to counter BJP in Gujarat.
Hours before the end of campaigning for first phase of Gujarat polls, Aiyar's controversial remark against PM Modi brought Congress back in the defensive mode, but Rahul Gandhi interfered timely and stopped the controversy from escalating.
First, full disclosure: I, like the irrepressible now-suspended Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar, am a south Indian, hence, Madrasi for most people up north.
Rahul Gandhi had yesterday asked Aiyar to apologise to Modi as he does not "appreciate the tone and language" used by his senior party colleague.
"Going by the prime minister's language and the allegations that he is hurling I can say that he is rattled".
Modi was referring to a controversy in 2015 when Aiyar, during a talk show in Pakistan, had reportedly made the statement.
