‘’I don’t appreciate this kind of language,’’ Mr Gandhi said, when asked to react to Mr Khurshid’s remark on the Gujarat Chief Minister.
Mr Gandhi’s reaction came two days after the Union Minister described Mr Modi as ‘impotent’, for failing to prevent the communal riots in 2002 in Gujarat.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Manish Tewari today said no comments on Mr Khurshid’s remarks were needed as the Congress vice-president has already clarified the party’s stand.
However, Mr Tewari said if the BJP continues to use derogatory language, then his party will aptly reply with decency.
Without taking the name of Mr Modi, Mr Khurshid, who is a sitting MP from Farrukhabad, asked why a man who aspires to be the prime minister of the country, could not do anything during the 2002 riots.
The External Affairs Minister’s fresh salvo against the BJP prime ministerial candidate at a rally came as he raised questions on the Gujarat Chief Minister’s handling of the post-Godhra riots in 2002.
‘’Some people came, attacked and went, and you couldn’t protect. Are you not a strong man?,’ the senior Congress leader asked.
