Shashi Tharoor and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are both good orators. When they speak, the world listens with rapture. And even though their languages differ, their words evoke a lot of emotions in their listeners and rightly so.
Today in Lok Sabha, Modi hit out hard at the Congress party and the Gandhi family, blaming them for the “partition of India” and for several instances that took place throughout the history. And while the opposition was quick to respond to his remarks, Shashi Tharoor made sure he used his erudition to drive home the point.
Responding to Modi’s address, Tharoor said,
“Prime Minister may be a terrific orator, but this speech (in Lok Sabha) was a farrago of misrepresentations and half-truth. I mean to claim credit, for example, lowering the price of solar panels when everyone knows that worldwide solar panel prices have gone down.”

He further added,
“To claim credit for lowering of prices for gas contract, of course, gas prices have gone down. In fact at the pump, why we are paying more for petrol and diesel? Since UPA’s time, prices of petrol and diesel have gone up.”
The trolls, however, had the last laugh.
When he uses ‘farrago’ often to insult PM, it seems like he’s being a ‘virago’ of INC, no?

While these war of words may never end, trust the trolls to always find a way to voluntarily get involved. Trust them to continue to take sides even if they don’t have any political inclinations. Such is the power of politics – it makes everyone talk!
