Aiyar, speaking to news agency ANI, said, "Ye aadmi bahut neech kisam ka aadmi hai, is mein koi sabhyata nahi hai, aur aise mauke par is kisam ki gandi rajneeti karne ki kya avashyakta hai?" (This man is a low-life person, he isn't cultured... why does he need to practice such dirty politics?).

Narendra Modi, addressing a rally in poll-bound Gujarat, attacked the Congress for its leaders using unparliamentary language. "A Congress leader, who has studied in one of the premier institutions, served as a diplomat, was a minister in Cabinet said that Modi is 'neech'. This is insulting and nothing but Mughalai mindset," Modi said.

Modi said the comments were an insult to Gujarat and its people, and were made by the same people who earlier called him 'Gaddha' and 'Gandi Naali Ka Kida'.
