Mani Shankar Aiyar Abuses, Assaults Journalist After Being Questioned Over ‘Neech’ Remark Against PM Modi

Mani Shankar Aiyar.

Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has courted controversy once again after he threatened to hit a journalist for questioning him over his infamous ‘neech’ remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Aiyar can also be heard using profane language during the incident.

Watch the video below:

The incident occurred at the Punjab government guest house in Shimla, during an interaction with journalists in which he was asked a question about his allegedly casteist remark against the prime minister in 2017.

“Don't you know there is a person in India, Narendra Modi. Haven't you heard about his sharp attacks. Go and ask him questions,” he retorted.

Labelling the prime minister a coward, Aiyar said to a reporter that he could not ask him any further questions. When the journalist persisted, Aiyar flew into a rage and pushed away his mic, proceeding to raise his fists in the air and threatening to physically assault the reporter.
