shashi-tharoor

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Shashi Tharoor, Congress leader and MP, on Thursday said that Mayor Arya Rajendran is working only for the party. He was speaking after visiting the strike venue of UDF protest in connection with the recommendation letter controversy in Thiruvananthapuram Corporation.

"The mayor, who works only for the party, has violated his oath of office. It doesn't matter from which party you contest elections. After winning and getting a position of power, you have to become the Mayor of everyone. The youths who are looking for jobs in our country are being cheated. Therefore, I was the first to demand the Mayor's resignation. What brutality the police have shown against the democratic protests? This can never be forgiven. Four KSU activists have been in jail for 18 days. 14 Youth Congress workers are in jail. Many people including Mahila Congress President and MP Jebi Mather are injured and are in hospital. What are these atrocities for? This is not true democracy.'- said Shashi Tharoor while supporting the protesters.
