Kerala Congress wants 'suitable action' against Shashi Tharoor for praising Modi

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerela Congress has decided to recommend AICC leadership to take appropriate action against Shashi Tharoor for "hurting the sentiments of the party workers by praising the initiatives of Narendra Modi".

The hurriedly convened meeting of the KPCC senior leaders which was attended by chief minister Oommen Chandy, home minister Ramesh Chennithala and KPCC president V M Sudheeran decided to submit a report to the AICC on this matter.

"Tharoor has hurt the sentiments of the party workers and it should have been avoided. The KPCC will submit a report to the AICC leadership which will detail about the popular sentiments of the party workers in the state on this issue. This should not be repeated again," said V M Sudheeran, KPCC president after the meeting.

Even though there were reports earlier that the KPCC would serve a show cause notice to Tharoor for praising Swachh Bharath initiative of Narednra Modi, the party leaders decided to leave the matter to the AICC leadership since he is an AICC member and official spokesman of the party.
