Tharoor to make statementin LS soon

Although he did not attend the Lok Sabha proceedings a day after his resignation, the member from Thiruvananthapuram did come to Parliament. It was to meet senior ministers Pranab Mukherjee and A K Antony who had heard him out last week. Tharoor was said to have sought their permission to make a submission in the House using his right as MP to make a statement.

Tharoor did make a statement in Lok Sabha on Friday last, giving his side of the story. However, a hostile Opposition did not allow him to read out the statement. He could read out the statement only before the media, outside Parliament.

Strangely, Tharoor, who has won many fans by his tweeting, has been silent for the last few days. Having caused embarrassment to the party and government on a number of occasions by his Twitter comments, Tharoor has not reacted to his resignation on the social networking site.

His last Twitter comment was on the morning of April 16, more than two days before his resignation. He had then thanked his fans for supporting him as he said: “Thanks for all the support &good wishes. U folks are the new India. We will “be the change” we wish to see in our country. But not w’out pain!”  Still, his resignation saw many Twitters rallying behind him criticising the government for seeking his resignation.
