Shashi Tharoor has found himself in a tight spot once again. Earlier today, he met the wife and son of disgraced ex-cop Sanjiv Bhatt and came out in his support. However, in an embarrassment for him, the pictures he posted on Twitter show that the National Flag on his desk is upside down.

Some even wanted legal proceedings against the Congress parliamentarian due to his callousness.
There must be legal notice to @ShashiTharoor for insulting Indian flag once more

Tharoor has earlier been accused of insulting national symbols as well. He was accused of disrespecting the National Anthem after he urged people to sing the anthem by placing their right hand on the left side of the chest, the Western way, instead of the traditional Indian manner by standing in attention. A case was filed against him as well. Ultimately, he was acquitted by the Court citing a lack of criminal intent.
