<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>On Sunday, after brouhaha over a comment he made about PM Modi, Congress leader Manish Tewari sought to issue a clarification on Twitter.He claimed that he wasn’t deriding the PM or the Mahatma. He claimed that if the brouhaha was over the Hindi phrase, it was meant to describe ‘idiocity’ and ‘nothing more’.He wrote on Twitter: “I put out a video ostensibly showing PM walking while National Anthem was playing.In response someone tweeted “AAP MODI Ko DeshbhaktiSikhiyan- Unko Mahatma Gandhi v Nahi Sikha Sakta…’ Subsequent Tweet in colloquial was deriding the response.No offence meant to PM or the Mahatma both of whom were invoked in response not my original tweet.In between flts saw the brouhaha on Twitter therefore context, if brouhaha is over Hindi phrase in colloquial – used to describe idiocity (sic) &nothing more. In this case of person who put PM over Mahatma.” He added if PM would help those who heap ‘abuse or women’.The tweet has received a lot of criticism from the opposition party, and comes in reference to an earlier retweet by Congress senior leader Digvijay Singh who posted a picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that said, ‘Mere do achievements, bhakton ko ch***** banaya, chu***** ko bhakt banaya.’Singh added a caveat to his post by saying, “Not mine but couldn’t help posting it. My apologies to the person concerned. He is the best in the art of fooling!”Digvijay Singh evoked the ire of many by posting the controversial meme.However, he stood his ground on defending his post and said that the retweet shoud not be counted as him saying those words. “I just retweeted something. I did not abuse Prime Minister Modi. I have just said that he is the best in the art of fooling. Is it abusive?” Singh said to the media. With inputs from PTI
