New Delhi: After making vital contribution to Narendra Modi’s impressive victory in Lok Sabha 2014, veteran politician Mani Shankar Aiyar has given another boost to PM Modi ahead of Gujarat elections by launching a personal attack on him. Mr. Aiyar called PM Modi a ‘Neech Aadmi’, a comment that was roundly criticized by everyone and ended up in Mr. Aiyar’s suspension from the Congress Party. However, till then the bulk of the damage was done, as PM Modi raised this personal attack in his election rallies striking an emotional chord with the public.
Appreciating the contribution of MS Aiyar to BJP’s election campaigns, PM Narendra Modi has requested him to repeat something similar ahead of Karnataka elections scheduled to held in 2018.
“Mr. Aiyar has been a key part of BJP’s election campaigning since 2014 and we hope he continues to work with us in the future as well. That is why Mr. Prime Minister has reached out to him and made a request to help him out ahead of Karnataka elections as well. It is the last big state that Congress rules and defeating them there will go a long way to achieve Congress-Mukt Bharat target of PM Modi”, said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.
Further, Mr. Patra added ,”We know that Mr. Aiyar has been suspended from Congress party but surely that won’t stop him from making these comments, old habits die hard. He just has to say something similar to his Chaiwala comment or this Neech Aadmi thing and we will take it from there. Congress se connect to Modi Ji apne aap kar lenge uske baad, master aadmi hain wo.”
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.
