Just when you thought Congress cannot damage itself any further, it unleashes Mani Shankar Aiyar to make situation created by Sam Pitroda even worse. In an article published in Shekhar Gupta’s ThePrint, Mani Shankar Aiyar manages to mock Hindus, the RSS, Gujarat all while justifying his ‘neech aadmi‘ comment he made on Prime Minister Modi in December 2017 ahead of Gujarat Assembly elections.

Aiyar writes how he is so confident that Modi will be ousted on 23rd May and it will be a ‘fitting end’ to the ‘most foul-mouthed’ prime minister India has ever had. Like a cherry on the cake, he tops it off with saying, “Remember how I described him on 7 December 2017? Was I not prophetic?”

On December 7, 2017, he had described PM Modi as ‘neech kisam ka aadmi’ (a lowly casteist slur).

Yes, a senior Congress leader just went on record to justify his casteist slur against the prime minister and even took pride in it by saying how he was ‘prophetic’ about it. Let that sink in.

Mani Shankar Aiyar has a knack of making such self-goals for Congress right when things have heated up which could turn the tides in the BJP’s favour. Mani Shankar Aiyar is widely believed to have helped Modi in his 2014 campaign when he used the term “chaiwala” (tea seller) as an insult for the then BJP Prime Ministerial candidate.

Mani Shankar Aiyar’s comments have infused a fresh dose of energy in BJP supporters towards the last phase of the very tiring elections. They took to Twitter to welcome their ‘lucky charm’. Twitter was flooded with hilarious reactions from Mani Shankar Aiyar’s ‘grand entry’.

Senior Congress leader Sam Pitroda was recently caught making self-goals for the Congress and embarrassing the party by casually shrugging off the 1984 Sikh genocide by his ‘hua to hua’ (it happened, so what?) comment. Earlier he had downplayed the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks by saying that Indians are like monkeys.

Congress-loyalist media persons too took it to Twitter to express how he has joined Pitroda in ‘damaging the party’ in middle of elections.

Mani Shankar Aiyar is prone to putting his foot in his mouth when it comes to scoring self goal by making controversial statements. While he was ‘suspended’ from the party after his ‘neech aadmi’ comment in December 2017, he was taken back in in August 2018.

Aiyar was also found shaming India in Pakistan when he hailed Mohammad Ali Jinnah for his role in freedom movement and even referred to him as Quaid-e-Azam while defending him for his role in the partition. Earlier he had called for the support of Pakistan to not only remove the current government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi but also to help Congress come to power.
