“Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations& outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalist”
Just with this simple (okay, not so simple) tweet, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor managed to trend on the social platforms across the country. The word ‘Farrago’ became the most searched term. While many picked this tweet for fun, humor and memes, undoubtedly this shows the real popularity of Mr Tharoor among the young Indians.
With impeccable extempore and fluency that rivals even that of the very best, Shashi Tharoor has managed to win the attention and respect of Indians – the citizens and the oppositions. And this has led many asking if he should replace Rahul Gandhi as Congress’s leadership role.
Many believe, even the ones from inside the party, that Rahul Gandhi is incompetent to lead congress. Devastating losses in recent elections has had Congress look back into the reasons of its existence. The party desperately needs a leader to guide it to the light. While Mr Gandhi is young and he often tries to lure the young population in his speeches, it is very evident that he has failed miserably to connect with the masses. Other leaders of the parties are no good either.At such time when we see a congress leader with such high appeal among the Indian youths – a name held high even among the oppositions – Shashi Tharoor sure seems like a nice replacement for Rahul Gandhi. He sure looks like the right name that can pick up congress from its biggest failures. He is, after all, doing some tremendous work in Kerala.
