Pointing towards the incidents of attack for alleged possession of beef, Tharoor said, “Even the possession of the illegal meat mean that you are immediately vulnerable to mob to be murdered on the street.. is that what UP and India have come to..”
Citing World Bank studies, Tharoor said 8.5 per cent of the country’s GDP was affected by the “damage caused by air pollution”. The white paper was prepared by the All India Professionals’ Congress (AIPC) — a wing of the Congress party.
Shashi Tharoor's wife was found dead at a suite in a five-star hotel in South Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014. Her body was found a day after her spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over her alleged affair with Tharoor.
