New Delhi, Apr 17 (ANI): The Congress Party, according to sources, seems not convinced over the explanation given by Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor on his alleged misuse of office to help his friend Sunanda Pushkar to get 'free equity' in Kochi Franchise.

Reportedly, a section of the Congress Party moved a compromise formula according to which if Sunanda Pushkar surrenders her stake in IPL Kochi, Tharoor may get a reprieve.

Pushkar has over 70-crore stake in Kochi IPL team, which she is free to sell it at any point.

Congress Party said it would have looked better if Shashi Tharoor had at least offered to resign.

Earlier, Tharoor said during an interview to a private news channel that he would not resign. (ANI)
