BJP activists smear black oil on Tharoor’s office

Thiruvananthapuram, July 16: Bharatiya Janata Party youth wing activists on Monday smeared black oil on Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s constituency office here over his comment that a “Hindu Pakistan” would be created if the ruling party at the Centre returned to power. Tharoor however, was not present in the office when the incident took place. He was attending other functions here. The Yuva Morcha activists, shouting anti-Tharoor slogans, barged into the office and even tied a banner saying “Hindu Pakistan” office. Thiruvananthapuram district BJP President S. Suresh said the incident was a protest against a wrong statement. “This protest took place as Tharoor is the Lok Sabha member from here and hence this is nothing but a natural protest because of his erroneous statement,” said Suresh. Senior Congress legislator V.D. Sateeshan told the media that the incident was a show of the BJP’s arrogance. State Congress president MM Hassan and Leader of opposition Ramesh Chennithala strongly condemned the act. (IANS)
