Responding to the online petition which is seeking Congress leader Shashi Tharoor as UPA’s PM candidate for 2019 elections, Kerala MP said that he neither endorses the campaign nor supports it.
Finally responding to the campaign via a Facebook post, Tharoor wrote,
“I am a member of Parliament for the Congress Party, nothing more and nothing less. The party has a settled leadership, which is not up for debate.”
“Once again, I thank everyone for their faith and support, and request that the petition be withdrawn. – Jai Hind!”
The online petition was started by a man called Paul Trivandrum, who said that the country needs Tharoor as UPA’s PM candidate for 2019 so as to “rejuvenate the opposition”.
