Shashi Tharoor Reveals: Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday posted lyrics of a popular song from Rajesh Khanna-Sharmila Tagore starrer ‘Amar Prem’ — ‘Kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai Kehna’, after a video of his conversation with Nationalist Congress Party MP Supriya Sule in Lok Sabha went viral. He also tweeted that he and Supriya Sule were discussing a policy related question.
This video is from the time of discussion on the situation in Ukraine under Rule 193 in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday. It is seen in the video that National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah is speaking in the House and at the same time sitting behind him, Supriya and Tharoor are talking among themselves. The video went viral on social media and people are having fun while commenting on it.
Reacting to this video, Tharoor tweeted, “For all those who’ve been enjoying themselves at @supriyaSule’s & my expense over our brief exchange in the Lok Sabha, she was asking me a policy question because she was about to speak next. She was speaking softly so as not to disturb Farooq Sahib, so I leaned over to hear her.”
Tharoor can be seen leaning over from his designated chair as he appears to patiently listen to the NCP leader, all while Abdullah gave an animated speech in the seat ahead of them.
Tharoor also took dig at netizens for giving different meanings to their discussion. In a light hearted tweet, he wrote lyrics of a popular hindi song.
