NEW DELHI: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Sunday said that Congress should not adopt BJP’s policy of ‘Hindutva Lite’ to strengthen itself at the national level. Tharoor was speaking during the launch of his new book, ‘The Hindu Way; An Introspection To Hinduism.’

According to Tharoor, adopting the ‘Hindutva lite’ policy can only lead to the doom of the Congress party. People those who are urging to adopt such a policy are committing a huge mistake. If the voter is presented with a choice between the original article and a pale imitation, he will choose the original every time, he added. “

Tharoor also took the opportunity to advocate the Congress’ long-standing policy of secularism. "As a member of the Congress party, I do believe that the party has a fundamental role -- and a duty to take the lead -- in defending the secular space in India," he said.
