Shashi Tharoor an embarrassment to our Prime Minister
What India can benefit from those who had been educated and outsourced from abroad for the ministerial berths is they invent more ways of how sophisticated the way they can exploit a country like India, recent example being how one who sits in the chair of public service can influence .
Tharoor detected political opportunities in mentoring a consortium that was intent on giving Kochi an IPL team is understandable. Yet, his role was more than that of a benign ‘patron’, as he now claims. Tharoor took an active interest in the operational aspects of the bidding process. He personally called on various bigwigs in the Board of Control for Cricket in India, including Sharad Pawar and Arun Jaitley, before the auction and was present in Chennai around the time the bids were opened. After his consortium won the bid and chose Kochi, Tharoor exulted publicly and attempted to extract maximum political mileage for himself in Kerala.
From being the outsider, he projected himself as the personification of Malayali pride.In his perspective Malayalee pride is playing cricket, leave alone the poor guy, who does not know the plight of Keralites who migrate to various parts of India for jobs and survival since he does not use the 'cattle class' of Indian Railways.Trains starting from Mangalore, Ernakulam and Thiruvananthapuram to various parts of India do not carry Malayalees either for tour or pilgrimage.
Poverty, lack of opportunities there push an ordinary young man or woman to go out of the state in search of jobs.This gentleman who worked abroad , even in U.N could make crores of rupees in the name of his girl friend is talking of Malayalee Pride.
It is a shame to every Malayalee to see one who occupies the chair of authority and misuses compromising on integrity , making mockery of Indian system of democracy.
He is an embarrassment to our Prime Minsiter and the Congress Party.The congress party which had leaders like Lal Bahathur Shastry who resigned when Ariyaloor accident happened when he was the Railway Minister.Examples are many like T.T.Krishnamachary etc., Recent one being P.Chidambaram who offered to resign although we know the fact , immediately no one can occupy the chair to tackle the present scenario; even opposition did not demand his resignation although discussion was on course of actions contemplated on various issues.
Tharoor is only a symptom of deeper malaise.
Let this' honorable gentleman' put down his papers to clear the deck for the Prime Minister to function without embarrassment , right now Tharoor is not indispensable but we need a Prime Minister like Dr.Manmohan Singh to lead our country at this juncture of Nuclear deal,terrorism,internal security.Only now we want hands who could strengthen our Prime Minister not the ones who weaken his Government creating embarrassment.
Pride is making Kerala as a state of integrity not the other way round as Mr.Tharoor does .He is a shame to Kerala.
