Kerala congress critics Tharoor on silver line rail project

Discontent is brewing in the state unit of the Congress party over its Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor’s reluctance to sign a letter prepared by the MPs from the party-led UDF to the Centre against the state government’s semi-high speed rail corridor and his open praise of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for his “investment-friendly” initiatives.

An unfazed Tharoor on Friday said in a tweet that on some issues it is necessary to put political differences aside and share his photo with the CM.

Veteran Congress leader and former KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran today flayed the Thiruvananthapuram MP saying that he should learn party discipline, while Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly V D Satheesan said the Congress would examine Tharoor’s stand and take an appropriate decision. While attending a programme here on Thursday, Tharoor praised Vijayan, saying he, as an administrator, was trying to change the impression that the southern state was not investment-friendly.

The statement came days after he refused to sign a letter prepared by the UDF MPs against the multi-crore Silver Line semi-high speed rail corridor linking the north and south ends of Kerala, a flagship infrastructure project of the Left government.

“Tharoor may be an internationally renowned person, writer, or an orator. But, he has to learn the principles and discipline of the Indian National Congress. It is not right to go forward without learning that,” Ramachandran said.
