I am taken by surprise on seeing the kind of reactions Dr Shashi Tharoor is getting for the comments he posted on twitter and his phrase of "Cattle Class". He was quick to explain what he meant and not to insult the passengers travelling by the Economy Class, but our political brothers dont seem to understand the same
Dr Shashi Tharoor is not a product of goondagiri or from any religious fascism and came to Indian political scenario. He is a highly respected world class personality who in fact made India proud when he was contesting for the UN Gen Sec elections recently. He stood 2nd place of the 7 contestants which is a great achievement to India for the kind of place we are still struggling to get in the United Nations. Talented, intellectual, writer, politician and a reformer and such incidents should not provoke him to leave Indian Politics for people like him are the need of the hour in Indian Democracy.
People who didn't know twitter or even who never followed his flow of conversations simply take this as a chance to put him down. Hmm, Good politicians are hard to survive in Indian Politics for sure. One clean politician who silently is doing his job and holding the most respectable position in External Affairs Ministry cannot be demotivated in such a way. Dr Shashi moved from P2 to being to the top most position in UN by his hard work, consistent growth, actions and deeds that reached beyond borders and bringing in solid decision making working for UN. His work spoke of a person who made it to Indian Parliament in last general elections. Let us encourage such leaders than frustrate them to quit soon!
