Examples of Shashi Tharoor's bombastic vocabulary keep arriving in the form of his tweets. In fact, too many of us have learned about words we didn't even know existed. This time, though, Tharoor has resorted to pure Hindi (a rarity for his tweets) with the sole purpose of taking a dig at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. This was followed after pictures of Yogi and his companions taking a dip at the Kumbh started surfacing on the internet.
For all those who follow, the BJP is claiming to be taking proactive measures in cleaning up the Ganga river. In fact, Yogi himself is responsible for reviewing the work in UP and a review meeting was called earlier, to check on the progress in Prayagraj (formerly Allahbad) so that a pollution free Kumbh could be ensured. Mass gatherings as such (Kumbh is considered to be one of the world's largest religious gatherings) are usually known to leave a large quantity of waste. Hence, Tharoor couldn't resist taking the following dig at Yogi!
Just in case you are thinking that a few of Yogi's colleagues must have been left irked with this, you are absolutely right. “How will he understand the importance of Kumbh? The atmosphere he’s in, the culture he has been brought up in, doesn’t understand this. You people have committed a lot of misdeeds, take a holy dip in Kumbh and you might be able to repent for your sins," UP Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh told HT.
Can't get over that 'Iss Sangam Mein Sab Nange Hai' though!
