Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has managed to irk the Kerala Congress unit with his recent tweet which praised none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“PM Narendra Modi should be praised whenever he says or does the right thing, which would add credibility to our criticisms whenever he errs,” tweeted Shashi Tharoor.
Kerala Congress President has demanded an explanation from Tharoor regarding his statement and several Congress workers have gone on to claim that Tharoor was bought out by the Modi government to speak positively while some other have branded him as a traitor.
“He is on Gandhi family’s payroll to sing praises for Rahul Ji. He is cheating then!” said one.
“Hamaari murgi hokar padosi ke ghar me jaakar anda de rahe hai Tharoor! Iss murgi ko halaal karna zaruri hogaya hai ab,” said an angry Congress worker.
Several Congress workers of the Kerala unit have also claimed that the real reason behind RBI’s surplus transfer of Rs. 1.76 lakh crore might have to do with buying out Shashi Tharoor.
“Lately we have seen several Congress leaders have abandoned the ship & joined BJP. Ever wondered why? Because BJP is paying them with all that RBI surplus cash!” said Faisal.
Currently it is not clear what Shashi Tharoor has planned to do with the Rs. 1.76 lakh crore signing amount, but if sources are to be believed he might use them to fly to London more often. Some believe Tharoor might even earmark some of the proceeds to bribe people in the Sunanda Pushkar case.
