Have you seen your relatives excitedly forwarding WhatsApp messages and forwards that are just distorted facts and baseless theories, and rolled your eyes. Well, it seems Shashi Tharoor’s taken a word out of the Urban Dictionary that perfectly describes such people.
Sunanda Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of a five-star hotel in south Delhi here on the night of January 17, 2014
“No one in this country can be more anxious than me to see the conclusion of this issue. I will cooperate with authorities and not with obstreperous and publicity seeking attempts by others,” said Tharoor.
In a veiled dig at the trolls against AIB, Shashi Tharoor spilled sarcasm in his recent post by adding the dog filter to his picture. He wrote alongside: “Attn all trolls: I took the #DogFilter challenge! @AllIndiaBakchod.”
Swamy’s PIL regarding the death of Pushkar also sought setting up of a CBI headed SIT to probe in a time bound manner under a court monitored mechanism under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, 1950, the murder case of the former in which inordinate delays have been caused.
Tharoor also lauded the visit saying that the relationship between India and Israel had reached “a level of maturity” which had made it possible for a first ever visit to Israel by an Indian Prime Minister
This is not the first time Shashi Tharoor has tried to highlight the peaceful existence of several communities and their diversity. Earlier this month, the MP from Thiruvananthapuram took to Facebook to post what many would agree is the ‘most secular’ picture they have seen in recent times.
Shashi Tharoor said, “Hindi is India’s most widely-spoken language and useful to know. But it cannot and should not be imposed on anyone.”
A source said, “There were four to five laptops which belonged to Pushkar and Tharoor, and over a dozen mobile phones belonging to their employees and friends. All these gadgets were sent to separate forensic labs. These reports, too, are awaited,” a source said.
