Chennithala criticise Tharoor for favouring Modi
Alappuzha: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala raised an open criticism against MP Shashi Tharoor for taking a stand in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Chennithala noted that Modi’s wrongdoings should not be hidden at any cost.
“Modi has always taken an anti-public stand. Congress will continue the fight against his policies,” said Chennithala.
“There is no need to glorify him over one good act after committing thousands of wrongdoings. Modi’s rule and his actions are not supported by the people. Hence, we should not glorify his acts,” he added.
Meanwhile, Shashi Tharoor responded to Chennithala in a rude way. He lashed out at Chennithala and noted that nobody should to teach him how to behave.
Shashi Tharoor has backed his party leaders Jairam Ramesh and Abhishek Manu Singhvi's arguement that "demonising Prime Minister Narendra Modi is wrong".
"I have argued for six years now that Narendra Modi should be praised whenever he says or does the right thing, which would add credibility to our criticisms whenever he errs. I welcome others in opposition coming around to a view for which I was excoriated at the time," Tharoor said in a tweet.
