"Karnataka election bhi sambhaal liyo", Narendra Modi requests MS Aiyar

  • Mani Shankar Aiyar

Narendra Modi has reassured Gujarat on the eve of the first round of polls that divine forces would protect him in spite of Mani Shankar Aiyar taking out a " supari (contract for murder)" on the Prime Minister in Pakistan.

"Rahul Gandhi displayed morality and suspended Mani Shankar Aiyar. That I have blessings of the people?" the PM said at a rally in Gujarat.

PM Modi pounced on Aiyar with renewed vigour.

"While many appreciated Congress" rather swift decision to suspend Aiyar, Jaitley took to Twitter and said it was could be part of a larger strategy.

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.

On Thursday, Aiyar used the "neech" word for Modi.




We tried to get a comment from MS Aiyar on the entire issue but he refused to entertain our questions after seeing the letter R on our cameraman's shirt, accusing us of being a rogue news channel.

He said, "BJP and PM Modi routinely use filthy language to attack Congress but this is not our party's culture and heritage". So, not surprisingly, when Aiyar referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as "neech" (lowly, despicable, cowardly, among 72 other meanings in Google translations) it certainly did not mean "low caste". "This is nothing but a Mughalai Mindset". "Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said", Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet. "They (panelists) are all optimist and that we can move forward when Modi sahab is there, but I don't think so".

"I beg to the people of India- please let them be".

Speaking about the recent suspension of Mani Shankar Aiyar, he added, "The Congress Party has taken a very firm stand. Mani Shankar Aiyar was asked to apoligise; he apologised and was suspended".

Learning from the political damage in 2014 Lok Sabha election cause by personal attacks against PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi had given clear guidelines to Gujarat Congress leaders not to resort to attacking Modi personally.

What then is also the appropriate term for Prime Minister Modi who has refused to even acknowledge the hate crime of a horrific hacking and murder of a Muslim labourer in Rajasmand in BJP-ruled Rajasthan on the same day, but has only been agonised by Aiyar's barb at him?
