Shashi Tharoor endorses AAP’s antics to expose Modi
While his infamous cattle class jibe lost him the job in the union ministry, his comments on Thursday have been lapped by the BJP for endorsing their claim of the Aam Admi Party (AAP) being a front for the Congress.

On Thursday, Tharoor hailed AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal’s tour of Gujarat exposing the ‘deficiencies’ and development ‘myth’ of Narendra Modi. ‘If AAP, a voice other than Congress has been showing the deficiencies of Gujarat, exposing hype and myth of Gujarat. We welcome that Kejriwal is going to villages of Gujarat... Kejriwal is doing a job that media should also be doing. If Kejriwal is going there and finding out the truth of Modi’s claims, we completely welcome that,’ Tharoor told reporters at the AICC meeting.

He in fact had no problems with the fracas which ensued following Kejriwal’s alleged detention in Gujarat leading to violent clashes between BJP-AAP workers in several cities. ‘...If Kejriwal’s antics have helped draw the attention, we welcome it. We welcome Indians being well-informed before casting their votes. We want the Indian voter to be aware of the reality,’ Tharoor said. However, realising that he was going overboard, he quickly added that it was a case of ‘politics of violence’ countering the ‘forces of anarchy.’

‘It was a revelation to the nation about the kind of alternative politics that is being talked about,’ the Union Minister said.

Talking to Millennium Post, Delhi BJP president Harsh Vardhan said, ‘we have always said that a discredited Congress is using the proxy of AAP to take on the BJP. Tharoor’s comments only vindicates our stand.’
