Modi should imbibe morality from Rahul Gandhi: Congress

Agencies, New Delhi

The Congress party on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should learn morality from its vice-president Rahul Gandhi. The stinging repartee came a day after senior leader Mani Shankar Aiyar was suspended from the primary membership of the Congress for using derogatory language against the premier.

Talking to reporters here, All India Congress Committee spokesperson Ajoy Kumar said,’Mr Rahul Gandhi showed morality in suspending Mani Shankar Aiyar. Mr Modi should learn morality from the Congress vice-president.

‘If he follows the same yardstick, he will have to suspend himself as well as the Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah. In the past, he used derogatory terms in reference to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul which include ‘Jersey cow’, ‘Hybrid calf’ and ‘aquarium fish.’

He also used the term ‘khooni panja’ for the Congress, ‘50 cr ki girl friend’ for Sunanda Pushkar and ‘Dehati aurat’ for former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.’ Lauding the action taken by Mr Rahul Gandhi in the case of Mr Mani Shankar Aiyar, Mr Kumar, however, said that the BJP and the PM had resorted to far more objectionable language.

‘What Mr Mani Shankar Aiyar said was wrong, very wrong. Necessary action was taken in the matter. However, the BJP and the PM had resorted to use of far greater objectionable words.

‘The PM should at least speak up on the issue.’ Mr Kumar said that it was a matter of regret that no debate was initiated on various media channels when Mr Shah referred to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi as a ‘chatur bania.’

The Congress spokesperson added, ‘There can be no greater objectionable comment than referring to Mahatma Gandhi as a ‘chatur bania’.

If the Prime Minister has even the slightest morality, he should first of all suspend himself and also suspend Amit Shah. Mr Amit Shah should retire from politics for making such a remark about the Father of the Nation.’
