INTERNECIN­E AND DISPUTATIO­US

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Congress MP Shashi Tha­roor re­cently en­dorsed party leader Jairam Ramesh’s state­ment that de­mon­is­ing PM Modi would not help the Congress re­gain its cred­i­bil­ity. How­ever, Tha­roor’s stand at­tracted the ire of his party col­leagues in Ker­ala. Ker­ala’s leader of the op­po­si­tion Ramesh Chen­nithala and state PCC chief Mul­lap­pally Ra­machan­dran said there was no need to show the PM in a pos­i­tive light. Lok Sabha MP K. Mu­raleed­ha­ran went so far as to ask Tha­roor to join the BJP. Tha­roor has said he doesn’t want their un­so­licited ad­vice. If this turns into a war of words, Tha­roor will likely have the up­per hand.
