Tharoor summoned over 'scorpion' remark against PM

Apr 27, 2019 18:29 IST

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor will have to appear before a Delhi court on the 7th of June, for his "scorpion" remark against PM Narendra Modi. A plea by BJP leader Rajiv Babbar in court against Tharoor alleged that his comments hurt his religious sentiments. Speaking at the Bangalore Literature Festival in October last year, Tharoor said that an RSS leader had compared Modi to 'a scorpion sitting on a Shivling'.
