New Delhi, Feb 26 IANS | 8 months ago

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Wednesday said that External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid should apologise for calling its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi "impotent".


Salman Khurshid in a rally in his constituency Farukkabad, Uttar Pradesh Tuesday said: "Our allegation is not that you (Modi) get people killed...but that you are napunsak (impotent)". It was in reference to Modi's claims to be a strong man, yet failing to protect people during the 2002 riots.

"It is utterly irresponsible, shameful and codemnable coming as it does from the foreign minister of India. If the Oxford educated Salman Khusrshid does not understand the distinction between incompetent and impotent then what should I say. Khurshid must apologise," said Ravi Shankar Prasad, deputy leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha.

Khurshid further added: "All I am asking the BJP and Modi to do is accept to what happened during the 2002 riots."
