The continuing saga of our esteemed minister of state, foreign affairs is a reflection of the sorry state of Indian politico-social ethos. It’s a wretched and totally shameless behavior by him. He keeps on displaying insensitive arrogance towards the sentiments and dignity of millions who were having high expectations from young yet experienced Tharoor when he entered in Indian politics last year. One of them was me, too !!!!
His series of misdemeanors brought into limelight by media and net which are really despicable are….
1. He and his senior cabinet minister were carrying out their official work from five star hotel suits as if they were descendents of king Tutumkhanam .When pointed out and requested to move to available accommodations in Hyderabad house, they gave arrogant statements shamelessly displaying their opulent monetary status. Such a behavior is regrettable in the backdrop of rising cost of common man’s “THALI”, failing monsoon with looming draught and debt-ridden farmers committing suicides in our country.
2. When a symbolic austerity drive was started by his senior congress leaders, he ridiculed them by comparing their efforts with ‘cattle class’ travel. Here again, his opulent arrogance and insensitivity is evidentL If people traveling in economy class are like cattle for him, what about 98% of Indians who never travel by air in their lifetime?????????
3. When lot of hue and cry is there condemning his loathsome twittering and lack of common socio-political sense, he displayed another glaring insensitivity by finding faults with the people who failed to see inherent humor in his tweeter blogging…
What can be said about this person who is not accepting his series of faults and now trying to cover it up by questioning the sense of humor of majority of those who read and disagreed with himL Mr. Tharoor must be made to understand that their political representatives and ministers should not be allowed to make fun of poverty and pathos of common man at all. Some visible steps must be taken in this case and such persons should not be let Scot-free.
