New Delhi: Union Minister of State Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, who recently came under strong criticism for using an abusive language while addressing voters in a campaign, on Tuesday said that she did not mean to target any particular person or party but separatists.


"I did not take name of any particular individual, community or party. I was talking about separatist parties and leaders who think of dividing the country and who do not consider themselves to be a part of India," said Jyoti.


Earlier on Monday, the union minister had used abusive words to urge voters to choose between candidates, while addressing voters in west Delhi's Shyam Nagar.


Her choice of words garnered strong criticism from various political parties.
