Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar on Thursday apologised for using the word “neech” (low) for Prime Minister Narendra Modi but maintained that he had not referred to him as “low-born”.

“I never meant low-born. There is a difference in the English language between words ‘low’ and ‘’low-born’. But in Hindi if low means low-born, then I tender an apology,” he told reporters after his remarks in the morning triggered a political storm.

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.

“BJP and PM routinely use filthy language to attack the Congress party. The Congress has a different culture and heritage. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr Mani Shankar Aiyer to address the PM. Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said,” Gandhi tweeted.
