Tharoor rejects online campaign projecting him as PM candidate   


Thiruvananthapuram : Former UN diplomat and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has rejected an online petition campaign projecting him as UPA’s Prime Ministerial candidate in the run-up to general elections 2019.

In his face book post, Tharoor, MP from Thiruvananthapuram constituency, wanted the people behind the campaign to withdraw the same.

“I do, however, feel it is time to make it clear that I neither support nor endorse such a campaign,” Tharoor said. He said he ignored the petition initially, but obliged to respond as it has gained attention in the media.

However, the MP thanked the creator of the petition.–PTI
