Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar on Tuesday got angry when asked about his article justifying the a slur he had used for Prime Minister Narendra Modi for which he was suspended from the party two years back.
Losing his composure over questions over the issue by reporters, he shook his fist at them and said: "I hate you."
He also accused the media of promoting selective quotes that "suits them".
Aiyar, who is staying at a Punjab government guest house here, was asked specifically about his article published on Tuesday, in which he said that he was "prophetic" in his description that Modi would be "ousted" by the voters on May 23.
