Not a Hindi speaker, messed up in translation: Aiyar
And the reason behind this was party's sensible campaign against BJP and PM Modi on the grass root issues.
Meanwhile, this was not the first time that Aiyar's remarks would have put Congress in a spot.
While inaugurating International Baba Saheb Ambedkar Centre in Delhi, PM Modi had accused Congress of disparaging Baba Saheb's contribution for endorsing the interests of one family.
Speaking to ANI, Aiyar had said, "Ye aadmi bahut neech kisam ka aadmi hai, is mein koi sabhyata nahi hai, aur aise mauke par is kisam ki gandi rajniti karne ki kya avashyakta hai?" So I used "low person", I translated "low" in my mind. "What is the need for doing dirty politics on such an occasion", he asked.
The move did not appease the BJP, which had criticised Mr Aiyar's words in the strongest terms.
The political slugfest between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress Party reached a new low when Mani Shankar Aiyar, earlier in the day, referred to Prime Minister Modi as a "neech aadmi" for appropriating Babasaheb Ambedkar into his election campaign for the imminent assembly polls in Gujarat. "They can keep their language, we will do our work", Modi told an election rally.
M's bolster funds in pursuit of Ohtani
Banuelos was probably the Mariners' top catching prospect in their minor league system, certainly from a defensive standpoint. A delegation from the Mariners met with Ohtani on Tuesday in Los Angeles at the offices of Creative Artists Agency.
Surjewala further asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he would ever show the courage to do something like this. Whatever I say they want to misinterpret. So now, the "darbaris" (courtiers) of the Nehru-Gandhi family would call our PM "neech" (vile) for asking these questions?
"Are we going to integrate them (Muslims)?" But answer them on 9 and 14 December (voting days). Hence, Congress had to face humiliating defeat.
BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said Aiyar was appointed to avoid media slip-ups and that he was wrong in saying he had no formal responsibility in the Congress.
Aiyar's unsavoury remarks have drawn a sharp reaction from Modi who dubbed it as an "insult" to Gujarat and a reflection of "Mughal mentality". Aiyar has also been served a show cause notice.
"This (the remarks) is the feudal arrogance of the Congress, as they could not digest the fact that the son of a poor tea seller has become the prime minister".
Modi was quick to latch on to Aiyar's remarks and had said that the Congress loyalist was proud of his party's 'Aurangzebi Raj (dynastic traditions).
