Senior Congress member and MP Shashi Tharoor and actor Anupam Kher entered into a verbal spat on Twitter today, and it seems Tharoor won it hands down.
It all started when Tharoor took to the micro-blogging site to comment on a statement by Kher on a recent interview for a television channel. Kher had said, “I am scared to be called a Hindu”.
Come on Anupam. I say it all the time. I’m a proud Hindu. Just not the Sangh’s kind of Hindu. @AnupamPkher https://t.co/jLgKlYwL96— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) January 30, 2016
To which, Kher said this:
Come on Shashi. Never thought you will misinterpret my statement like trolls do. And behave like a Congi Chamcha. https://t.co/SOD44ZPYvM— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) January 30, 2016
Congi chamcha? We thought Tharoor is a member of the Congress anyway. Tharoor echoed the same, and ended the debate with this:
. Abuse, @AnupamPkher , is what you use when you run out of arguments. I’m a proud MP of @INCIndia &I don’t resort to insults. #CongiChamcha— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) January 30, 2016
