The austerity farce being staged by the ruling “holy cows” has come to be looked at with curiosity as the Prime Minister Mr. Man Mohan Singh’s Minister of State for External Affairs, Shashi Tharoor, untrained obviously in Congress hypocrisy, has, on Wednesday, failed to remain tamed in carrying out instructions sans reaction.
Asked while social networking as to what class of travel should he prefer to fly into his constituency, his reply was, “Absolutely, in cattle class out of solidarity with all our holy cows.”
Taking into consideration the class of the fellows that constitute the so-called Indian National Congress, Tharoor’s statement is not at all unbecoming of him. But he is yet to know that the Congress is not a political party as a party should be, but a mere club of holy cow’s sycophants, where birds of the same feathers are “appointed” to flock together in service of the holy cow. In this club, Tharoor’s mention of “holy cows” is bound to be viewed by the sycophants as an insult to their most insulated object of sycophancy that not only emits the aura of power but also is the only cow that controls the power without being in power.
No wonder, AICC Spokesperson Jayanti Natarajan has told reporters in New Delhi, “We do not approve of this articulation”.
Wait. She has said no less than saying, “We condemn it”.
What the Prime Minister shall now do with Tharoor? Will the affront against the holy cow go sloughed over? Whither the congress is to go?
