Congress leader and Parliament Member Shashi Tharoor on Friday in Bengaluru claimed that there prevails an incredible disillusionment in the country about the promises made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi,since they remain sugar coated promises only.
Shashi Tharoor was in Bengaluru to read out a few excerpts from his book – ‘The Paradoxical Prime Minister’.
“There definitely is a perception of regime change at the centre. There is incredible disillusionment against Modi. Many also have reacted to communal violence and cow vigilantism, saying that this is not we have voted for. They expected Modi to deliver on his promises, which he has failed in almost all of them,” the Congress MP told Press Trust of India.
When enquired about the political prospects of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Rajasthan , which went to the polls Friday, along with Telangana and Mizoram, he said he was quite confident of the party winning at the hustings as people were ‘disillusioned’ with PM Modi’s rule.
He also opened up about the Sabarimala that BJP is making the violent protests and he did not go with that commented “We have to respect the Constitution and rule of law,”.
Last month Shashi Tharoor asked the BJP and RSS not to “desecrate” the Sabarimala temple and termed Sabarimala violence as “utterly disgraceful act at the hill shrine” .
