Tharoor Misleading Public

Posted by

Congress MP Dr. Shashi Tharoor, in his recent book on PM Narendra Modi, which is titled THE PARADOXICAL PRIME MINISTER, keeps harping on the fact that BJP got (just) 31% of the national vote in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

What Tharoor cleverly fails to mention is that his own Congress party did not even manage to cross 29% vote share since 1991.

Tharoor also fails to mention that:

  • BJP’s vote share of 31% was 60.6% higher than Congress’ 19.3% votes in 2014
  • BJP’s vote share in 2014 went UP by 25.9% compared to 2009.
  • Congress’ vote share in 2014 went DOWN by 32.4% compared to 2009, after 10 years of Sonia Gandhi led UPA governments.

Please #NoMoreLies Dr. Tharoor – surely you should set higher standards for yourself, given your background and eminence.
