The BJP slammed former Union Minister and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for questioning the progress the country made in recent years. The saffron party leaders said that making fun of the country is Tharoor’s favorite pastime.

In a tweet, Shashi Tharoor said, “Since the BJP is so obsessed w/our image, reflect: For decades, the world saw India as a land of snake-charmers and fakirs lying on nails. In the last 25 yrs, India became the home of doctors and computer geeks. Now we’re a land where people drink cow urine and bathe in cow dung. Progress?”

Quoting a screenshot of Tharoor’s tweet, BJP Rajya Sabha member Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe said, “Making fun of India’s culture, traditions and heritage has been your favorite pass time.” In another tweet sharing a news report, Sahasrabuddhe said, “Now you must stop this Shashi Tharoor Ji, just in case you have an open mind to listen to your senior party colleague Oscar Fernandes Ji.”

In the report shared by Sahasrabuddhe, former Union Minister and senior Congress leader Fernandes talks about an anecdote about a man in Meerut who claimed to have cured his cancer by drinking cow urine and how by doing ‘Vajrasana’ he cured his knee pain when doctors had suggested for replacement surgery.

BJP National General Secretary (Organisation) B.L. Santhosh tweeted, “Your tweet shows what you read nowadays. By the way India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi has two vaccines to its credit … two medicines for mildly infected patients. If you need I can quote another 100 for you.”

While listing the Country’s progress in recent times, BJP National Spokesperson, Sanju Verma tweeted, “Under Narendra Modi, this is what happened. Today India is the world’s second-largest steel producer, third-largest electricity producer, second-largest smartphone market, second-largest two-wheeler, and third-largest automobile producer, seventh biggest stock market, third biggest start-up destination #SenileDown.” (IANS/SP)

Indonesian lawmakers passed a law on the relocation of the nation's capital to the island of Kalimantan, which shares borders with Malaysia and Brunei, from the most populated island of Java. The move is a step forward in one of the most ambitious projects initiated by the country's President Joko Widodo, Xinhua news agency reported. Some former presidents had floated ideas of relocating the capital city in the past. The president, widely known as Jokowi, three years ago vowed to relocate the capital city to the province of East Kalimantan due to a number of issues like high population density and land subsidence in Jakarta which is home to more than 10 million people.
