Hours after Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar put the party on the backfoot ahead of the Gujarat election by calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "low-life person", he was strongly chastised by party vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

I do not "appreciate the tone and language" used by Ayiar, Rahul tweeted as he asked the veteran Congressman to apologise for his comments.

"Both the Congress and I expect him to apologise for what he said," Rahul said, after using the opportunity to hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party for "routinely " using "filthy language

to attack the Congress party."

"[But] the Congress has a different culture and heritage," Rahul, who is tipped to take over as Congress president soon, added.

Interestingly, Rahul Gandhi during a recent Gujarat trip had called for "dignified" campaigning that does not "ridicule" the Prime Minister's Office.

"He [Narendra Modi] is the prime minister of our country and he must be respected. I remember how Manmohan ji was ridiculed when he was the PM. I said we will not do that to Modi ji," Rahul had said.
