Retaliating at senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyars "neech" jibe against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP on Thursday said the Congress leaders remark reeked of feudal arrogance and "darbari soch" (sycophancy) that is inherent in the Congress party.

"Mani Shankar Aiyar called our Prime Minister as neech'. What does this signify? This shows the feudal arrogance and darbari soch' inherent in the Congress party," Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said here.

"They cannot bring themselves to terms with the fact that a person from a less privileged background became the Prime Minister of India. How could a 'chaiwallah' become the Prime Minister? That is the thinking behind this," he added.

Prasad also alleged that the "first family" never tolerated a Prime Minister from outside their fold and always tried to destabilise them.

Earlier in the day in New Delhi, Aiyar called Modi a "bahut neech kisam ka aadmi" who is practising "dirty politics".
