New Delhi, June 14: Shashi Tharoor has done it again. The MP from Kerala, who was recently criticised by Congressmen for praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi a week back, praised HRD minister Smriti Irani on Thursday.
On Twitter, Tharoor describes Irani as an 'engaged and receptive' minister and said that he enjoyed meeting her during a discussion on India's educational challenges.
Enjoyed a good meeting with @smritiirani on India's educational challenges. Appreciate an engaged&receptive Minister. Best wishes for MHRD.— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) June 12, 2014
To all the cynics: my last tweet was not a blanket endorsement of anything @smritiirani or her Govt may do in future. It's called civility.— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) June 12, 2014
However, soon Tharoor said that his tweet was not a blanket endorsement of Irani and that his act was more out of civility.
