Tharoor rubbishes rumors of joining BJP


New Delhi: Rubbishing all rumors that he is joining the BJP after being praised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his speech at the Oxford University, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said that he is far from joining the Bharatiya Janata Party.

He said, “I am not about to join BJP and far away from it and at the same time I don’t believe that the Congress party has any desire to get rid of me because the Prime Minister has something good to say.”

Speaking about the disruptions in the Parliament during the ongoing monsoon session, the Congress MP said that although he is sad that the steps had to be taken by his party, he stands by the Party’s decision.

He said, “We should be able to debate the law rather than disrupt the debate.”
