Bihar BJP head wants ban on bad language during campaigns

Voicing his opinion over the use of unparliamentary language during poll campaigns Bihar BJP president CP Thakur said that a ban on the use of derogatory language during such public meetings should be imposed.

Thakur's remarks on Wednesday came in the wake of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's recent jibe on Union Minister Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar as a "Rs 50 crore girlfriend" at an election rally in Shimla.

"I disapprove of what Modi said about Tharoor's wife," a Hindustan Times report quoted Thakur as saying.

Tharoor had also retorted to the jibe on Twitter by calling his wife "priceless".
