Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar lowered the political discourse when while being questioned on whole lot of issues threatened mediapersons saying: “I will hit you,” showing a punch and end the conversation with “f**k-**f.”
He was questioned about his neech jibe at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday.
Aiyar who was staying adjacent to the Himachal Pradesh CM’s official residence at Punjab guest house lost his cool when he was questioned about an article he wrote, recalling a slur he had made at Modi in 2017.
“Don’t you know there is a person in India, Narendra Modi. Haven’t you heard about his sharp attacks. Go and ask him questions,” he said in Hindi.
He added and “he doesn’t talk to you since he is a coward. He doesn’t talk to the media.”
Then he hilariously raised his arms in air trying to imitate Modi.
During the daytime when reporters again confronted him, Aiyar was calmer. He said it was just one line in his article and he will not get involved in media’s “games”. “I am a fool, but not such a big fool,” he said.
In 2017, the former Union minister had called Modi “neech aadmi” following which he was suspended from the Congress party.
