Union Minister Giriraj Singh, who triggered a major row today with his racist comments on Sonia Gandhi, was forced to express his regrets after a call from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah who made it clear to him that “such language” was not acceptable.

Party sources said Shah called Singh over telephone and made it clear in no uncertain terms that it was unbecoming of a minister to use such a language.

However, a party leader said Congress leaders have been using abusive language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and none of them, including Congress President Sonia Gandhi, have apologised ever.

He said the BJP respects everyone and does not accept foul language against others.
