On Wednesday, the Kerala Congress leaders Oommen Chandy, Ramesh Chennithala and VM Sudheeran said that they would ask the high command in Delhi to act against Shashi Tharoor for praising various initiatives by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and thereby hurting the sentiments of party workers.
Tharoor was one of the nine Indians who were tagged by Modi when he launched the Swacch Bharat mission on Gandhi Jayanti day. Later, Tharoor hailed Modi for undertaking the cleaning campaign.
However, it is known that the Delhi leadership won't act against Tharoor for losing an MP when Congress' strength in the Lok Sabha is at an all time low is not a logical thing to do.
Tharoor, who was a top official with the United Nations before he took the plunge into politics, is an All India Congress Committee member and one of the official spokespersons of the party.
In response to the Kerala Congress' decision, Tharoor tweeted, "Delighted to learn KPCC is preparing a detailed report. That means they might finally actually read what I wrote instead of oral summaries."
