Some sources said that “Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who generally does not get angry, on Wednesday literally blasted Tharoor because of the leak of his views against party’s stalling tactics in Parliament in the media.”, and they also told that the party chief was in no mood to listen to any explanation from him.
Sonia Gandhi was anger on Shashi Tharoor:
Sonia Gandhi was very angry on him because of the fact that his opposition to separation tactics at a strategy meeting. There has been a sizeable section in the Congress, especially young MPs, who want the party to make the most of the situation. Reports quoting unnamed sources had it that at Tuesday’s strategy committee meeting, Tharoor had expressed himself against “stalling tactics”.
Shashi Tharoor said the separation tactics — a repeat of what the BJP did when it was in the opposition — may not be effective. He had given three reasons for this. The first reason: When it was in the opposition during the last Lok Sabha, the strength of the Congress is just 44 though the BJP strength is 110 plus. The second reason: It is not clear either the support of the opposition will join the Congress or not. The third reason: Tharoor is learnt to have argued that the government will, in all probability, brazen out the opposition attack.
Sonia’s blame of Tharoor reached among a belligerent Congress leaving no stone unturned to corner the Narendra Modi government over the various scams involving top BJP leaders. The Congress has been demanding the resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and the chief ministers of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh over Lalitgate and Vyapam. This is not for the first time the Thiruvananthapuram MP has been caught on the wrong foot by the party. Some of his views including what was seen as being appreciative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had caused a controversy.
