Tharoor no longer the pride of Congress

September 18 2009

There was a time when the Congress people took great pride in Tharoor because the gentleman was a favourite of 10 Janpath. But in the changed political scenario, ever since Tharoor had to leave a five star hotel of Delhi under humiliating circumstances, the brightness of this star has diminished somewhat in the political firmament. Recently the intelligence agencies have informed the Prime Minister and Home Minister that the Canadian wife of Tharoor is also an important diplomat. So this is also made out to be a matter of conflict of interest. Tharoor’s wife is a diplomat of another country and Tharoor is himself the junior Minister in the Ministry of External Affairs here. His wife Christa Guiles herself invested about 214.5 million in America, Canada, Dubai and Kerala. The hotel bill of the Minister has also been paid by a company called Alfas. The Prime Minister is himself taking this entire matter quite seriously. So in the days to come, Tharoor may have to leave his post or his portfolio could be changed.
