NEW DELHI: Pushing for a new language in politics, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the fight on issues can be brutal but hatred and violence should not be used against each other.
Gandhi's message for leaders and political parties came on a day Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar was back in the news with an article justifying his "neech" jibe against Narendra Modi, and also calling him the most "foul-mouthed" prime minister the country has seen.
