Civility a rare virtue in Indian politics: Shashi Tharoor after Nirmala Sitharaman pays him visit

Thiruvananthapuram: Congress Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor tweeted on Tuesday that he was “touched by the gesture” of Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s who visited him in hospital, a day after he was injuring while performing a religious ritual at a Thiruvananthapuram temple.

“Civility is a rare virtue in Indian politics – great to see her practice it by example!” sharing a picture with Sitharaman, Tharoor tweeted.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor was taken to hospital after he suffered injuries while making a Thulabharam offering at the Gandhari Amman Kovil temple in Thampanoor in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

Tharoor, who sustained injuries on the head and legs, was rushed to the nearest hospital for preliminary treatment. Tharoor got eight stitches, after which he was shifted to a super-speciality hospital.

Tharoor has been on a campaign trail and had earlier performed Thulabharam in Kazhakkoottam constituency before kick-starting his election campaign from there.

He is likely to be discharged from the hospital today and will resume his campaign.
