Hours after Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar justified his ‘neech aadmi’ remark against Narendra Modi, the prime minister said since the opposition parties are losing, they are trying to draw satisfaction by “hurling abuses.”
“Going by the response of people in the six phases of elections, it is clear that the opposition parties will face a humiliating defeat. Their anger has touched the seventh heaven now. They are trying to draw satisfaction from hurling abuses,” Modi asserted during a rally in Bihar’s Buxar.
Earlier in the day, Aiyar justified his ‘neech aadmi’ remark against Modi in an opinion piece. In December 2017, Aiyar was suspended from Congress’ primary membership following his jibe against the prime minister.
