Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Sunday said he is not upset or angry with anyone in the party’s Kerala unit and has no problem talking to anyone as “we are not in kindergarten where talking to each other is prohibited”. Thiruvananthapuram MP Tharoor, who was here to attend the state-level conference of the All India Professionals Congress, told reporters that he had not spoken against anyone in the party, nor had he done anything against its (party) instructions. In such a situation, they do not understand why such a controversy has been created.
He told reporters before the event, “I am not upset or angry with anyone. I have not blamed anyone or accused anyone. There is no complaint or issue from my side. I don’t mind seeing everyone the same and I don’t mind talking to anyone.” When asked whether he would hold talks with Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly V D Satheesan and state Congress president K Sudhakaran, Then he said that he (Sudhakaran) is not well and he will participate through video conference.
About Satishan, he said, “If we meet at the venue, we will meet.” He asked, “If he talks to me, why won’t I talk? We are too short in kindergarten not to talk to each other. But if we are not at the same place at the same time then how will we talk to each other.” Satishan had recently said without naming Tharoor that no factionalism or parallel activities would be allowed in the party. Will go He warned that such moves would be dealt with “seriously”.
This is one of the many statements made by the Leader of the Opposition in the light of Tharoor’s visit to Malabar. A significant section of Congress in the state is worried and some see ‘agenda behind this move’. Tharoor’s detractors feel that through his programs he is positioning himself as the chief minister of the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in the 2026 assembly elections to end the rule of the Marxist Communist Party (CPI)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF). Trying to present himself as the ideal candidate for the position. LDF is ruling in Kerala since 2016.
