Fishing for Trouble | Soapbox

Will Shashi Tharoor never learn? The Thiruvananthapuram MP’s grandiloquence was used against him yet again, to rile the fishermen community in Kerala.

Tharoor’s tweet saying it was great to see the enthusiasm in a fishing village even for a “squeamishly” vegetarian MP like him was projected as an insult to the state’s fisherfolk.

It took three days of visits to fishing hamlets around the coast, fish in hand, for Tharoor to convince his constituents that he was not talking about them. Can’t be good to eat your words, especially for a squeamish vegetarian like him, eh!
