Gadkari`s language "highly derogatory", says Congress

Congress on Thursday said the BJP president used highly derogatory language.



New Delhi: A day after Nitin Gadkari made objectionable remarks against RJD chief Lalu Prasad and SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and later said he would take them back if the two leaders felt bad, Congress on Thursday said the BJP president used highly derogatory language.

"It is highly derogatory language. But we are not surprised... Soon after Gadkari was made BJP President, it was said that his stature was not of a national politician. He is justifying this impression with this kind of language," party spokesman Shakeel Ahmed said.

Another party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan termed Gadkari`s remarks as "shocking and outrageous", saying he should apologise to the nation for bringing politics to such a low.
Yesterday at Chandigarh, Gadkari used derogatory insinuations against Prasad and Yadav for not supporting the opposition during cut motions in the Lok Sabha. Later, he however offered to take back the words if the two Yadavs felt bad.
