New Delhi: Strongly condemning Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s remark on Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushka, JD(U) spokesperson Shivanand Tiwari has said that he (Modi) has insulted all women in the country with his comment.

The leader further said that Modi is eyeing the Prime Minister post in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, slated for 2014.

Earlier on Monday, Modi while addressing an election rally in Mandi had said that "Wah kya girlfriend hai. Apne kabhi dekha hai 50 crore ki girlfriend?" (What a girlfriend?. Have you ever seen a 50-crore girlfriend).”

"There was a Congress leader who was a minister. He was accused of amassing wealth from cricket. He had said in Parliament that he is not connected to the Rs 50 crore in the lady's name," Modi said, in an apparent attack on Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar.      

"And then girlfriend becomes wife, we learn some time later...the issues are still not settled and he (Tharoor) is now made a minister," the Chief Minister had said.
