Congress leader Shashi Tharoor

Bharatiya Janata Party leaders have attacked senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s social media post mocking exams in Uttar Pradesh and termed it ‘shameful’. A viral picture of an answer sheet by Shashi Tharoor was posted on social sites asking the question, “Who is Uttar Pradesh called?” So in the answer it was written, “The state in which the answer is known before the examination is called Uttar. A region is called a state. Shashi Tharoor tweeted on this and wrote, ‘Great! Debate on Examination”

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) condemned Shashi Tharoor’s post and called it an insult to the people of Uttar Pradesh. BJP leaders said that Shashi Tharoor should apologize for his remarks.

He wrote that nothing better can be expected from Shashi Tharoor, but today’s satire about UP is a gross insult to the entire state and its people. He wrote that the Congress, which insulted Uttar Pradesh, should apologize to the people of the state. Otherwise the people here will keep an account with him. This mentality of Congress is highly reprehensible.

Rajiv Chandrasekhar termed the statement as ’embarrassing’

Former Union minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar, who lost to Tharoor in the recent Lok Sabha elections from Thiruvananthapuram, accused the Congress party of “shameless politics” and a “sense of superiority”. He wrote, “Shameless politics of shaming other fellow Indians – this is the Congress way, brilliantly demonstrated by this self-titled global citizen.”

“This kind of thinking is deeply embedded in the DNA of the Congress,” he said, referring to the recent controversy over Sam Pitroda’s comments about Indian citizens.
