Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is often in the headlines for his statements and English. Now Shashi Tharoor has praised PM Modi. Shashi Tharoor argues that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel represented a national appeal and a Gujarati origin and so is Narendra Modi. This is not the first time that PM Tharoor has praised PM Modi. Even before this, he has praised the PM. Tharoor has said these things in his book ‘Pride, Prejudice and Punditry: The Essential Shashi Tharoor’.
Mentioned PM in his book
Shashi Tharoor wrote in his book – The Thiruvananthapuram MP also feels that Modi is a shrewd domestic politician who knows every color of politics very well, he distinguished himself from the rest of the Gujaratis, especially Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Shine is scattered. He wrote in the book – It was started by PM Modi from the year 2014 when Narendra Modi, the then Chief Minister of Gujarat, aggressively claimed the legacy of Sardar Patel. Tharoor claims that in his quest to imbibe himself in a more special quality and lineage than his party, Modi asked farmers from across India to build a massive, nearly 600-foot statue of iron with his plow. Called to donate and people did so too. This statue is the tallest in the world, which dwarfs even the Statue of Liberty.

PM’s image tarnished after 2002 riots
Tharoor wrote that Modi’s image was tarnished after the 2002 riots. But later he projected himself to the public as a leader who took tough and decisive action like Patel. He further wrote- Just like Sardar Patel represented Gujaratis, PM Modi is doing the same today. At the same time, the message of ‘Modi like Patel after Patel’ also resonates among Gujaratis, which shows his specialty among Gujaratis.
