I am a freelance Congressi, I hold no post in the party, so I can reply to PM in his language,"Mani Shankar Aiyar told ANI".

"This Mughlai Mindset sees everyone but prices as 'Neech.' What all have they called us- donkeys, Neech, Gandi Naali Ke Keede...the people of Gujarat will give a fitting answer to such deplorable language".

Reacting to the senior Congress leaders barb at PM Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, "It is not just a matter of filthy language but of Congress" mindset which says that only one family can rule this country and if someone from the weaker section becomes PM then they call him "chaiwala' and neech".

Further, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad took a jibe at Aiyar, saying the mindset of Aiyar is of a "darbaari" (court man) in the courtroom of Congress.

Asked about Rahul Gandhi's tweet that he did not appreciate Aiyar's words to address the Prime Minister, Aiyar said he could talk about it only after meeting Gandhi.

Aiyar said the word "neech" has many connotations and he never meant to comment on the Prime Minister's caste. "But these days they are not remembering Baba Saheb, but Baba Bhole". "They can keep up with their language, we will do our work".

Aiyar on Thursday called PM Modi a "neech aadmi" (low-born) for appropriating Babasaheb Ambedkar for his election campaign for the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections. Now, I am not a Hindi speaker and I translate from English to Hindi. It is very possible that in Hindi - which is not my natural language and which I learned after much effort - I translated "low" as "neech".

Meanwhile, Aiyar defended his remark on PM even as he apologised, stating that Hindi was not my mother tongue and that he meant low level when he used the term "neech".

"The Congress leaders are speaking in a language that is not acceptable in a democracy".

"I am not an official spokesperson of the Congressmen".

Ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Aiyar had said that a chai wallah will never India's prime minister.

His clarification has come after he sparked a controversy by calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "neech aadmi".

"If you are unsure of the language or facts, then you are unfit to be in politics", he said.
