Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is sacked by Congress high command Sonia Gandhi and he is no more a Congress spokesman for the simple reason that he accepted the invitation of Prime Minister Modi to join clean India movement (Swakchh Bharat Abhiyan). How funny? Looks like Tharoor, an intellectual and the one who is known for his frank views on different matters, is prompted to join some movement like ‘Unclean India’ as against ‘Clean India’. Clean India is a chaste movement once launched by the father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi and presently reiterated by Prime Minister Modi. This is an issue for every Indian and can’t be restrained within the boundaries of some politics or the other. Indian history is full of names in different political parties who tried to sabotage even the freedom movement of the country at some point or the other and if semblance of the same is reflected on issues like ‘Clean India movement’ there is not much of a surprise. Politics hardly knows ethics and there are political leaders who care three hoots for something altogether positive if it doesn’t fit into their own system of thoughts negatively based on a politics of revenge. No person in the country is supposed to oppose a move that is positively in its interest be it a giant sized personality or a small fry. National interest is supreme and above every thing else and any move against it amounts to an anti national activity. In fact Tharoor’s action was every inch in the interest of the Nation and sacking him for this amounts only to an anti national activity but it certainly puts a question mark against Sonia Gandhi on her credentials as a bonafide citizen of the country.
