Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s endeavor to show aggression at the Centre over demonetization by utilizing the surname of the recently crowned Miss World named Manushi Chhillar backfired few days back with the nationalized Commission for Women choosing to beckon him over his “deprecating” comment. Accusing Tharoor’s remark, the NCW also asked him to apologize for supposedly mortifying the accomplishment of Chhillar. Tharoor written an apology over his statement, which he later stated that was a “light-hearted” statement and also honored Chhillar.
On the other hand, it was still not clarified if he apologized after the NCW gave him a serious view for his tweet. “What a blunder to demonetize our money! BJP party should have comprehend that Indian currency dominates the world: you can see, even our Chhillar has now crowned as the Miss World!,” Tharoor stated on the micro-blogging site, in fact punning on the remark ‘chillar’, which in Hindi stands for loose change.
“@NCWIndia will call for @ShashiTharoor to commission on his offensive and humiliating tweet on our pleasure @ManushiChhillar. She got recognition and name for our country by captivating and winning #MissWorld crown,” the commission stated on social platform called Twitter. Accusing Shashi Tharoor of demeaning the accomplishment of Chhillar, she is a medical student who is basically from Haryana, the NCW asked should the Congress leader will call his own descendant as a “chillar”.“…he must apologize without more ado,” they stated.
Tharoor apologized, stating that no offence was meant on the “beautiful young girl”. “Guess the witticism is the lowest form of wit, & the bilingual witticism minor still. Apologies to everyone, who got virtuously insulted by my light-hearted tweet; definitely no offence was meant to a beautiful and bright young girl whose respond I’ve individually praised. I request you to please: Chill!,” he tweeted. On the other hand, Shashi Tharoor not only tried to draw a connection among the Miss World’s surname and demonetization on the social site with many of them joking on the statement ‘chillar’.
