Shashi Tharoor: One Way In Front Of The Party, Another Way In Front Of The Media… Congress Criticizes Shashi Tharoor’s Behavior: Congress circles are furious with Shashi Tharoor, who has been accused of rigging in the party’s presidential election polling. Election Chairman Madhusudhan Mistry clarified that there is no truth in the allegations made by the Tharoor faction.

The Congress was furious with Shashi Tharoor for committing irregularities in the party’s presidential election. Mallikarjun Kharge was elected the party’s first non-Gandhi president in 24 years, defeating Shashi Tharoor with a huge majority. The Tharoor faction wrote to Congress election in-charge Madhusudan Mistry complaining of “gross irregularities” while the counting was underway at the AICC office. They bombed that there were massive irregularities in the presidential election. Shashi’s agent Salman Soz has complained to Congress Election Chairman Madhusudhan Mistry, alleging that rigging has taken place on a large scale. Also, photos and proofs regarding the irregularities have also been submitted. When party sources think that Kharge’s election is a formality, Shashi Tharoor’s complaint has become interesting. But even though Tharoor expressed remorse for the leak of the letter, the Congress counter was fierce.

If this is the case… Congress Central Election Authority Chairman Madhusudhan Mistry on Thursday severely criticized Shashi Tharoor on the allegations of irregularities in the conduct of elections. In another letter to Tharoor’s team, Madhusudhan Mistry said in another letter to Tharoor’s team, “I am sorry to say that you are satisfied with all our answers and that the allegations against us have come across differently in the media.” But your request has been accepted, yet you have gone to the media alleging that the Central Election Authority is conspiring against you. The objection was raised that this is not correct.

No bias in the poll: Mistry

Expressing concern over “irregularities” in the elections in Uttar Pradesh, Tharoor’s team said they have looked into the complaint. There is no basis for their complaint. He said that no bias was shown in the polling.

The leadership of the party remains with Kharge- Tharoor

Earlier, Tharoor had alleged irregularities in the conduct of elections in Lucknow on October 19. Tharoor told the media persons after the announcement of the party’s election results, “Our party has not held elections for 22 years. Troubles are inevitable in this type of election. Leadership continued with Kharge at large. No wonder you have a choice between change and continuity. It is known that Tharoor asked why you want to change if you are a part of continuity.

However, Tharoor, who accepted defeat after the results, congratulated Kharge. Hoping that he will continue to guide the party, he thanked retired president Sonia Gandhi for her leadership.
