Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar is controversy’s favourite child. Even before his recent controversy about justifying the “neech aadmi” remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi could calm down, he has stoked yet another one.
While talking to media this morning, Aiyar misbehaved with a reporter from News 18 India. Calling the PM a coward Aiyar said, “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.”
Aiyar also mocked the Prime Minister and then all of a sudden charged at the News 18 India reporter with his fist up. He also used vulgar and abusive language against the reporter.
Meanwhile, twitter users have lashed out at the Congress leader for his misbehaviour.
Watch this video carefully, Mani Shankar Aiyar says to the journalist that he will hit him and then abuses in the end. What will @RahulGandhi do? Will he again suspend him and revoke his suspension a few months later.. shameful conduct by aiyar.. watch and share this pic.twitter.com/3pUvagsR4J

Condemning and rejecting Aiyar’s statement Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that in politics people should not be violating the time-tested principle of self-discipline in the political discourse of mutual respect and adherence of ideas and ideology and not resort to verbal abuse while fighting an election.
Surjewala further said that it was Congress president Rahul Gandhi who showed the path to give due regard even to the worst political enemy.
Surjewala further said that hatred, violence and abuse have been the modus operandi of the BJP and not of the Congress and added that the saffron party has been blinded by rage and revenge.
