Hussain further averred that Congress party should have taken a stand against Aiyar earlier, as suspension post an outrage does not matter.
Echoing similar sentiments, BJP leader RP Singh also questioned Aiyar's behaviour and asked whether the Congress believes that a person only with a strong dynasty background can become the leader of a nation.
The Congress party yesterday suspended Aiyar from the primary membership of the party.
Aiyar, while talking to ANI, said it was the first prime minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who turned Dr Ambedkar's wish into reality and it was not correct to badmouth the Nehru-Gandhi family.
"This person is a 'neech aadmi' (low-minded). He is not civilised and in a situation like this, there is no need to practise such dirty politics," Aiyar said.
However, Aiyar clarified that the word 'neech' holds different meanings, adding he would want to apologise for the wrong translation.
