“AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge has made a sound decision to include Shashi Tharoor into the Congress working committee. That shows maturity and magnanimity of the current leadership looking into the future,” said George Abraham, Vice-Chair of the Indian Overseas Congress, USA. The talent and skill set Tharoor could employ to help the party is phenomenal, and teaming with Rahul Gandhi to challenge the misgovernance of the Modi administration will sure have an impact,” Mr. Abraham added.
Shashi Tharoor is considered by many as a dynamic leader with scholarship, charisma, a pan-Indian appeal, and the wisdom to help the party as it faces an uphill battle to dethrone the Modi regime. Shashi is a true admirer of Jawaharlal Nehru and a great proponent of the Nehruvian vision for India. He greatly advocates secularism and argues strongly for a pluralistic India as a foundational philosophy for the society-at-large. He is known as a thinker in the Nehruvian mode and has authored several books and written extensively through articles and columns in several countries.
IOCUSA wishes Shashi Tharoor, Sachin Pilot, and all the newly appointed members of the CWC the very best as they are gearing up to battle BJP in the upcoming national election of 2024.
