Modi, of late, was using language that did not behove a political leader and had lost "decency", Modhvadia added.

Gujarat Congress president Arjun Modhvadia today alleged Chief Minister Narendra Modi had insulted all women in the country with his comment on Union Minister Shashi Tharoor's wife.

Modi, of late, was using language that did not behove a political leader and had lost "decency", Modhvadia added.

"Recently, on the issue of malnutrition, Modi had said that as Gujarati women are beauty-conscious, malnutrition is high in Gujarat.

"I personally, on behalf of the people of Gujarat, apologise to those against whom the Chief Minister has made these remarks," Modhvadia said.

Speaking in Shimla yesterday, Modi had taken potshots at Tharoor, saying his wife was once his "50-crore-rupee girlfriend".
