India needs to see Modi 'the implementer' delivering results: Shashi Tharoor

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on Thursday that India needed to see Narendra Modi the implementer, delivering results his rhetoric had promised.



Delhi: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on Thursday that India needed to see Narendra Modi “the implementer', delivering results his rhetoric had promised.”

Tharoor posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “In 2014, we saw Modi the campaigner. India needs to see Modi the implementer, delivering results his rhetoric has promised.”

Tharoor posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “In 2014, we saw Modi the campaigner. India needs to see Modi the implementer, delivering results his rhetoric has promised.”

Earlier, Tharoor, had earned the party's wrath for praising PM Modi, when he had said that in the Prime Minister "we are all seeing a master communicator at work".

He, had however, hit out at BJP for "promoting a nakedly bigoted Hindutva agenda".

Noting that communication has been a major strength of the NDA government, particularly Modi, Tharoor had said, "The Prime Minister is very effective in speech-making, comes up with slogans, sound bites, photo ops in quite an unparalleled way.

"There is no question that we are all seeing a master communicator at work. And that has its merits but it is not enough," he had said.

He had, however, insisted that not much of what Modi had promised had been implemented.

"After all, the people who voted for Modi thought they were voting for a man of action. So far instead of a man of action, the nation has got a man of words and the real question that comes is when these words get translated into results," he had said.

Tharoor has praised Modi quite a few times recently which was frowned upon by Congress. Last year, the former diplomat-turned politician was removed as party spokesperson for praise of Modi.

However, on February 02 Congress saw nothing wrong in Shashi Tharoor's latest praise of Narendra Modi as a "master communicator".

AICC spokesman Abhishek Singhvi insisted that Tharoor has instead drawn attention to the "huge hiatus" between the words and deeds of the Prime Minister, as per PTI.

"It is wrong to distort. We should be fair... What is the clear meaning, intent and spirit of what he has said... He has faulted Modi on the huge hiatus between what he says and what he does," Singhvi said.
