Congress party, Shashi Tharoor in an ugly war of words over tweet on Delhi gangrape victim

Shashi Tharoor

This is not the first time Tharoor had courted controversy with his public comments.

In 2009, Tharoor had tweeted he would travel in "in cattle class out of solidarity with all our holy cows", causing a political uproar.

He was also involved in controversies surrounding IPL in 2010 when Lalit Modi had alleged that he was asked by an influential Union Minister not to get into details of Sunanda Pushkar who was given equity of approximately 4.5 per cent in one of the league franchisees.

Tharoor denied the allegations but was forced to quit as Minister of State for External Affairs.
