Attacking government over demonetisation, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday said that there has been no positive impact on the economy due to note ban.
Tharoor said it was “unfortunate” that Shakespeare was taught in schools and colleges in India whereas there was not enough emphasis on the teaching of Kalidasa.
“We were sitting on a peaceful dharna outside RBI office but we were arrested by Police and were later released,” Tharoor told ANI.

Appreciating the Swachh Bharat Mission, Tharoor said that he had supported the mission as the issue of awareness was raised by none other than the Prime Minister.
Tharoor was delivering the keynote address on the second day of the conference-The Future of Liberal Arts and Science Education.
“I think by not putting up a more credible candidate, the BJP is essentially saying ‘we give up the seat to Congress’ and obviously, that’s good news for us!” Tharoor said.

In another tweet, Rao said, “Why is Congress hell bent upon insulting great men who have sacrificed everything for the nation.”
