Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president Dr. C. P. Thakur, at a press meet in Patna on Wednesday, objected to the use of demeaning language recently used by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi saying ban on the usage of derogatory words should be imposed on all politicians to instill confidence in the public.

"There is no place for abusive words in any political discourse. They should be banned and the users of such language should be adequately reprimanded if they are found to be using them as political weapons to demean their opponents," Dr. Thakur said.

The BJP leader was responding to a question by Modi's recent salvo against Central Minister and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor during which he described Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar as the 'Rs. 50-crore girlfriend'.

As reported, Modi, while holding an election rally in Simla few days ago, said of Pushkar, "Wah kya girlfriend hai. Aapne kabhi dekha hai 50 crore ki girlfriend?" (Wow, what a girlfriend! Have you ever seen a 50-crore girlfriend?)

"Such barbs only cheapen the dignity of the politicians and leaders of all parties would be well advised to refrain from using vulgar, demeaning language," Dr. Thakur said adding politics was not a bad profession but it was incumbent upon the politicians to mind their language so as not to degrade the public position that they occupy.
