After Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar sparked controversy by calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a 'neech aadmi'(low-level person), Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi stated that he expect Aiyar to apologise for what he said. Gandhi took to his twitter handle and posted, "BJP and PM routinely use filthy language to attack Congress party. Congress has a different culture and heritage. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr Mani Shankar Aiyer to address the PM. Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said". Aiyar's comments were in apparent response to PM Narendra Modi subtly attacking Jawaharlal Nehru at a rally in Gujarat earlier today.
