Even as Congress leader and parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor stuck to the statement that he made on ‘BJP getting re-elected and India becoming a Hindu Pakistan’, his party is not quite comfortable with the stance.
It is now being said that the senior party leader from Kerala, the Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was cautioned today by his party.
Shashi Tharoor had said that India would become a “Hindu Pakistan” if it comes to power in 2019.
The ruling BJP has reacted with outrage and demanded his apology over his comments on Wednesday.
Asked to respond to BJP’s demand for Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s apology, he said this has always been his stand and he had said the same in 2013.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra had said, “Rahul Gandhi must apologise for what Shashi Tharoor said. Congress was responsible for creation of Pakistan because of its ambitions yet again it has gone ahead to demean India and defame Hindus of India.”>
