Twitterati Are In No Mood To Spare Mani Shankar Aiyar For His ‘Neech Aadmi’ Jibe At PM Modi

Published on 8 December, 2017 at 3:45 pm By

Just ahead of Gujarat elections, senior Congress leader and an old Gandhi family loyalist, Mani Shankar Aiyar, left the grand old party in an embarrassing situation as he called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “neech kisam ka aadmi.” In a quick damage control exercise, Congress suspended him from its primary membership and the A K Antony-headed disciplinary action committee issued him a show-cause notice. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi too deplored Aiyar’s language against the prime minister and asked him to apologise, which the former Union Minister did, a he claimed that his knowledge of Hindi was not good.

However, The BJP termed the action an eyewash.

PM Modi claimed the remark was a casteist slur against him.

 

An election rally in Surat, the Prime Minister said: “They can call me neech jaati. 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. That is my culture. They can keep their language, we will do our work.”

The prime minister also said that Aiyar has a number of university degrees, was a diplomat for a number of years, but was resorting to such insults.

The whole episode was enough to give fodder to Twitterati:
