New Delhi: The Twitter post shared by Shashi Tharoor on Gandhi Jayanti, two days after filing nomination for the Congress presidential poll, has received much attention.

Tharoor shared a famous quote of Mahatma Gandhi on his Twitter account which read: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

The post came up at a time when he was being openly condemned by many Congress leaders for his decision to contest for the post.

Though Gandhi family had assured that they would “neither directly nor indirectly” back anyone in the polls, as per the statements of Tharoor, Mallikarjun Kharge’s candidature has an official aura within the party.

Only a few leaders from Kerala, including Hibi Eden, MK Raghavan and KS Sabarinadhan, have extended support to Shashi Tharoor, while most of the Congress veterans in the state remain hostile to Tharoor’s decision of contesting in the polls.
