Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor on Monday issued a press release after the AICC decided to remove him as the party spokesperson.

In the press release, Tharoor said he accepts the decision of the Party President to relieve him of his responsibilities.

“I am in politics to serve the people of India, and my constituency, Thiruvananthapuram, through my service to the Congress party.

“This I have always done with utmost sincerity and commitment and I will continue to do so,” Tharoor said.

Refering to KPCC’s complaint against him for “praising Modi”, Tharoor said he wished to draw the attention of the AICC leadership to the full range of his statement and writings on contemporary political issues.

“I am now treating this matter as closed and have no further comment to make,” Tharoor said.
