Tharoor’s office vandalised in Kerala capital, MP claims “Sanghi goondas” behind it

About 15 workers barged into the office located near the Government Press in the heart of the city on Monday noon and poured black oil in front of the office.

Thiruvananthapuram, Jul 16 (PTI) Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s office here was vandalised today by the youth wing activists of the BJP, police said, days after he set off a huge row with remarks that the BJP, if voted to power again, will rewrite the Constitution and pave the way for creation of a “Hindu Pakistan”.

About 15 workers barged into the office located near the Government Press in the heart of the city on Monday noon and poured black oil in front of the office. They then placed a wreath in front of the office gate and installed a ‘Pakistan Office’ board.

The Congress Lok Sabha member from the Kerala capital said the BJP and “Sanghi goondas” orchestrated the incident.

“Today @YUVAMORCHABJP vandals attacked my constituency office in Thiruvananthapuram. They poured black engine oil on signs, doors, walls & gate, drove away innocent citizens waiting with their petitions, put up offensive banners & shouted slogans asking me to go to Pakistan,” Tharoor tweeted.

“We have all been warned. The BJPs answer to the simple question have you given up the dream of a Hindu Rashtra? is apparently vandalism & violence. That is the face they have shown in Thiruvananthapuram today. Most Hindus will say these Sanghi goondas do not represent us,” he wrote on the microblogging website.

Speaking to ANI, Tharoor said, “People had come with their concerns but you scared them away from here. Is this what we want in our country? I am asking as a citizen, not as an MP. This is not the Hinduism that I know of.”

“The BJP’s answer to the simple question ‘have you given up the dream of a Hindu rashtra?’ is apparently vandalism and violence.”

He added that after today’s alleged act of violence by the BJP, even Hindus will distance themselves from the “Sanghi goondas”.

The Congress had distanced itself from Tharoor’s “Hindu Pakistan” remark made at an event on Thursday, while the BJP sought an apology from party president Rahul Gandhi for the “attack on Indian democracy and Hindus” by the MP.
