Chennai:  A day after senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar made controversial ‘tea vendor' remarks against BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narenda Modi, the former Union Minister's office in his home town in Tamil Nadu was attacked by miscreants while the BJP staged protests against him.

Unidentified miscreants pelted stones at Aiyar's office in Mayiladuthurai, damaging some window panes, police said, adding security had been stepped up at the office.
 
Aiyar, presently a Rajya Sabha member, had earlier been elected to the Lok Sabha from Mayiladuthurai constituency.
 
At the AICC meet in New Delhi yesterday, Aiyar had said, “I promise you in 21st Century Narendra Modi will never become the Prime Minister of the country... But if he wants to distribute tea here, we will find a place for him,” an apparent reference to his childhood days when he sold tea.
