New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said here Thursday that he does not “appreciate” External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid’s “impotent” remark on BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Khurshid at a rally Feb 25 in his Farrukhabad constituency in Uttar Pradesh, called Modi “impotent” in failing to protect the people during the 2002 Gujarat riots.
“I do not appreciate this kind of language,” Gandhi told the media here.
Other Congress leaders also said that the party does not support the use of such language.
“Congress party does not support the use of such language. Congress leaders should not use such language as this is the language of BJP. What Rahul Gandhi said is right,” said Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Shukla.
Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari said: “Congress will only use the language that is appreciated by the people.”
