A court case was filed against Priyanka Gandhi Wednesday for her remarks on BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, terming his speech in Amethi as ''neech rajniti'' (low level politics).

The case was filed by a BJP leader.

"I have filed a case in Patna civil court against Priyanka Gandhi for insulting and hurting the sentiments of the lower castes," Surajnandan Kushwaha said.

Priyanka Gandhi, the daughter of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Monday said Modi had insulted her "martyred" father Rajiv Gandhi, and that the Congress booth workers in Amethi would give a befitting reply to his "low-level politics".

"They have insulted my martyred father on the soil of Amethi. People of Amethi will never forgive them for this wrong act. My workers at booths will reply to this despicable politics. Each and every booth of Amethi will give a reply," Priyanka Gandhi had said.

Former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi had represented Amethi in parliament.

In his speech in Amethi Monday, Modi had attacked the Gandhis and accused the Congress of "arrogance".

He said Rajiv Gandhi, when he was a Congress office bearer, had "humiliated" the then Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister T. Anjaiah at an airport. Anjaiah was chief minister 1980-82.
