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

PM Modi at an election rally had hit back against the remark made by the senior Congress leader and had said it was unacceptable in a democracy.

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.

Hours before the end of campaigning for the first phase of Gujarat assembly elections, Mani Shankar Aiyar once again did what the Congress was trying to avoid in Gujarat. My intention was never to talk of Prime Minister's caste. "(This man is a low-life person, he isn't cultured. on this occasion, why does he need to do dirty politics?)", Aiyar told a news agency earlier in the day, reacting to Modi's allegation that the Congress had tried to "erase" Dr BR Ambedkar's contributions to nation-building during a function to open the Ambedkar International Centre in the Capital. "And what is my crime - that we have the blessings of the people". "They can keep their language, we will continue doing our work".

Immediately after Aiyar's comment, Prasad on Thursday said: "It is the feudal, arrogant thinking that only they (Congress) can rule India and no one else". "You had gone to Pakistan to give my supari, you wanted to give Modi's supari".

Terming Congress party's action against Aiyar a "strategic suspension", Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley asked people to "see through this game".

After Aiyar's remark mushroomed into a massive controversy, Congress went into a damage-control mode and suspended Aiyar from its primary membership.

What did he mean by removing me from the way.

"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.

Rahul said, "I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr Mani Shankar Aiyar to address the Prime Minister and both Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said".

Congress also issued a show cause notice to him for calling PM Modi a "Neech Aadmi".

He said, "BJP and PM Modi routinely use filthy language to attack Congress but this is not our party's culture and heritage".
