"I feel the word 'Yuvraj' is insulting. India is a democratic country and this word has no meaning today," Gandhi said.
His political opponents, especially Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, describe Gandhi as a 'Yuvraj' while attacking him.
The description of Gandhi as the 'Yuvraj' of the common man by Congress member E M Sudarsana Natchiappan also sparked off an uproar in the Rajya Sabha on April 21, with the Bharatiya Janata Party objecting to the use of the term and terming it as a blot on democracy.
