Shashi Tharoor Shows a Mutilated Map of India in his Manifesto

Congress presidential election candidate Shashi Tharoor on Friday landed in a row as the manifesto shared by him for the survey shows a mutilated map of India in which he has wrongly omitted parts of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

The map displayed in the manifesto evoked sharp responses on social media, and Tharoor’s office corrected it. A functionary from his office said the mutilated map was a “printing error”.
Amit Malviya, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (Bjp’s) IT cell head, said while Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is on ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, Tharoor is never going to budge on fragmenting India.

“Shashi Tharoor, Congress’s presidential hopeful, puts a mutilated map of India in his manifesto. While Rahul Gandhi is supposedly on a Bharat Jodo Yatra, the wannabe Congress President is hell-bent on dismembering India. Maybe he thinks this might help find favor with the Gandhis…,” Malviya tweeted.

This is not the first time that Tharoor confronted flak for showing a misshaped map of India.

Back in 2019, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram tweeted a map of India where the northernmost territory of the nation was absent. He later deleted the tweet and redressed his error.

The manifesto likewise has a grammatical mistake on its last page. Numerous on social media have noted it to be a gigantic goof-up and disgraceful. The senior Congress leader has over 8 million followers on Twitter. On the last page, tomorrow has been incorrectly spelled as “tomorror”.

On Friday, Tharoor filed his nomination papers at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) office in Delhi, in the wake of visiting Raj Ghat to give pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi, to contest the Congress presidential surveys on October 17

“I have just submitted my nomination papers as a candidate for the presidential election of @incindia. It is a privilege to serve the only party in India with an open democratic process to choose its leader. Greatly appreciate Soniaji’s guidance and vision (sic),” he tweeted.
