After his recent tirade of claiming that no good Hindu would want to see a Ram temple at the Babri site, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has yet again issued a controversial statement saying comparing Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a ‘Scorpion on a Shivling’ and claimed that PM Modi cannot be even hit with a chappal.
According to the reports, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, while speaking at the Bangalore Lit Fest on his book ‘The Paradoxical Prime Minister” on Sunday, he went on to claim that some unnamed RSS leader had expressed to a journalist that Prime Minister is like a ‘Scorpion on a Shivling’ and you can neither remove him with your hand nor hit him with the chappal (footwear). This derogatory statement by the Congress leader has now created a new controversy.

Shashi Tharoor slanderous statements targeting the Prime Minister comes after his recent failed attempt to insinuate and humiliate Hindus after he had claimed that no good Hindu would want to see a Ram temple built by demolishing somebody else’s place of worship.
We had also reported on how Shashi Tharoor went on to use false data and images to peddle fake news against the BJP after the Uttar Pradesh government decided to restore the historical name of Prayagraj.
Yesterday, daughter of Congress leader Sushil Kumar Shinde and MLA Praniti Shinde had referred to the PM as ‘dengue mosquito’ saying that ‘Modi baba is dengue mosquito, everyone is falling sick because of him.
