The party has also lodged a police complaint against the BJP leader, urging Shimla Police to register a case against him.
"I have narrated an incident while addressing a public meeting in Nalagarh tehsil of Solan district whereby a derogatory remark was made against Rahul in retaliation of using 'chor' word for PM in a viral social media message," Satti told PTI.
"The person who used the derogatory word and made such a message viral can not be our worker. Even then I asked my workers to restrain from using such remark or sharing such messages," he said.
He said the Congress leaders listened to only a part of his speech.
"They should hear my speech in totality and then they will come to the conclusion that I have not used any derogatory remark against Rahul Gandhi," Satti said.
He said, "Our workers have their own sentiments for the PM. So, Rahul Gandhi and Congress leaders should also apologise for using 'chor' word for PM in public meetings and should stop using that word for Modi".
When contacted, Shimla SP Omapati Jamwal said, "An online complaint has been received at Sadar police station. We are studying the contents of the complaint."
Kimta said the Congress would hold protest rallies across the state on Tuesday at 11 am.
"If Satti does not apologise publicly for making the derogatory remarks, the Congress will not hesitate to gherao him," he added.
