Shashi Tharoor gets slammed for his ‘wordplay’ on Miss World Manushi Chhillar

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, who was recently slammed for playing vote bank politics on Twitter, today made a ‘joke’ on Manushi Chhillar, the Haryanvi girl who won the Miss World beauty pageant title yesterday, while trying to take a dig on Indian economy by mocking demonetisation move by Modi government.

Rating agency Moody’s which recently upgraded India’s rating, has been a talk of the town. So much that the communists from his home state Kerala, which boasts of highest literacy rate, could not differentiate between Moody’s, the agency and Tom Moody, the cricketer, and started abusing the latter.

But people were not impressed with the lame, misogynist wordplay and called him out on the same.

Some were brutal,

While others expressed their views that mocking a private individual like this is quite unbecoming of an MP.

And some mocked Tharoor.

Ouch! Social media is unforgiving. Perhaps a good time for Tharoor to learn the difference between चिल्लर and छिल्लर from Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s Hindi tutor.
