Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that he "did not appreciate" the 'item' remark used by party senior leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath for state's minister Imarti Devi.

"Kamal Nathji is from my party, but personally I don't like the type of language that he used; I don't appreciate it, regardless of who he is. It is unfortunate," Rahul Gandhi told the media on the second day of his visit to his parliamentary constituency Wayanad in Kerala.

While campaigning in Dabra (Reserve) Assembly segment in Gwalior district on Sunday ahead of the bypolls to the 28 seats of Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha, Kamal Nath had used 'item' word for Imarti Devi, who is the BJP candidate from the seat.
