Shashi Tharoor and his way of campaigning...from wedding venue to royal family
Thiruvanathapuram: When election campaign heat is up in Thiruvanathapuram, Shashi Tharoor, the sitting MP and congress candidate for Lok Sabha polls, is having a busy time canvasing votes from the public. Tharoor tweeted some pictures of his poll campaign on Monday. In one of the picture the UPA candidate was seen interacting with a bride and groom who were having lunch at their wedding venue. The couple and the guests are seen laughing with Tharoor.
Tharoor shared the photograph with a funny note and twiterrites celebrated this tweet.
“No one is spared during elections- not even the groom and bride trying to get a quiet lunch when their MP comes canvassing for votes,” Tharoor captioned the image.

Sharing some good time with the public, he had tea from a thattukada here. He also found time to take selfie with some people.
In his busy schedule, he visited the family of Karunakaran who died following sunstroke. Considering the seriousness of sunstroke in the scorching summer, Tharoor urged his partymen to take care of their health.
Tharoor has been a star in the social media for a long time.
The joys of the campaign trail are easier to celebrate when one is back in the shade! pic.twitter.com/6tTn3noGPh— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) March 24, 2019
Took a moment from my campaigning to thank this traffic cop at a busy junction for his service and offer him water. This is no weather for a uniformed officer to be standing in the middle of the road, but we should all be grateful that he is. Salute! pic.twitter.com/4XqSMPH8Km— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) March 25, 2019
Proud to have the endorsement of the auto-rickshaw workers’ union. They need support, social security &simple facilities like vishramam Kendras in different corners of the city to rest from the relentless heat. pic.twitter.com/CjuLBcxqjD— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) March 25, 2019
