NEW DELHI: In the press release issued by the INC, it said that the Congress president had approved the recommendation of the Central Disciplinary Committee of AICC for revoking the suspension of Mani Shankar Aiyar from the primary membership with immediate effect. Aiyar was suspended in December hours after he called Prime Minister Narendra Modi “neech kisam ka aadmi” – a low-life kind of person – while campaigning for the Gujarat Assembly elections.
On the other hand, PM Modi too had used the remarks to attack the Congress. Modi had linked the remarks with his caste in the elections and said that it showed the mindset of the grand old party.
An official notification, issued by party general secretary Ashok Gehlot said, “Congress President has approved the recommendation of the Central Disciplinary Committee of AICC for revocation of suspension of Shri Mani Shankar Aiyar from the Primary Membership of the Congress party with immediate effect.
