Congress workers demand removal of Shashi Tharoor’s Personal staff; Raise serious allegations

The Personal staff of Shashi Tharoor allegedly keeps 'unauthorised and suspicious dealings' with some business tycoons while they show complete negligence to the demands of party workers

Thiruvananthapuram: A group of Congress workers raises serious allegations against the personal staff of Shashi Tharoor ahead of the Loksabha elections. The new controversy may not be helpful for Tharoor as Congress leadership has decided to field him for a second term in the Lok Sabha constituency.

The Personal staff of Shashi Tharoor allegedly keeps ‘unauthorised and suspicious dealings’ with some business tycoons while they show complete negligence to the demands of party workers.

“He completely avoids the Congress workers who approach him to get an appointment of the MP (Tharoor). But he will go and meet some business magnates to address their queries. He won’t even attend the phone calls of the Party workers and leaders. He will make unnecessary delays in processing our recommendations even if it is about some school admission. Someone can be sceptic about the integrity of Tharoor even if he is not aware of the ‘iffy dealings’ conducted by the PS.” says a Congress leader about the PS of Tharoor.

Some Youth Congress leaders have sent letters to the AICC leadership demanding the removal of Tharoor’s PS, according to the sources. The Leaders reportedly said that they will release more details regarding the allegations against the personal staff if the AICC does not take immediate action on this matter.
