After conducting a high profile campaign to win from this Lok Sabha seat,former UN diplomat and Congress candidate Shashi Tharoor is back on the streets again,this time to give it a clean look by removing his election posters off city walls.

The former UN Under Secretary,along with a group of supporters,was seen tearing down his posters in some parts of the city.

“This is a beautiful city. I don’t want to disfigure the walls with pictures of politicians after the elections. I want to set a model by removing the posters,” Tharoor said.

Tharoor,who is pitted against CPI’s P Ramachandran Nair said the action did not mean that he would compel others to follow suit. “Anyway I have decided to remove all the posters of UDF from the walls,” he said.
