Shashi Tharoor Rajeev Chandrasekhar

Coming hard on Congress candidate for Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor over his “false” claims, Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidate Rajeev Chandrasekhar said on Wednesday that if anybody tells lies about him, he will not remain quiet and will use all the tools under the purview of law to ensure that person is held accountable.

In an interview with ANI, Chandrasekhar said that Tharoor, in his desperation, has flung a lot of allegations at him.

“I think Mr Tharoor, in his desperation, has flung a lot of allegations at me. One of them was that I am paying money for votes and I have said very clearly that I will not be drawn into this kind of politics. However, if anybody trespasses and says lies about me, I will not be quiet. I will use all the tools under the law to ensure that person is held accountable,” he said.

Further, sharpening his attacks on the Congress, Chandrasekhar said that the Congress has devouid of competing ideas for development and progress.

“The Congress party has no competing ideas for development and progress. Since they have no idea how to compete with us, they will always resort to politics of lies. I welcome the EC’s investigation and the Congress party will be proved wrong. Throughout my 18 years of public life, I have an absolutely stellar record. I did not have to resign from the government due to my IPL interests like some MPs had,” Rajeev said.

In 2010, Shashi Tharoor resigned as Minister of State for External Affairs in wake of the controversy over the IPL Kochi franchise.

The BJP candidate from Thiruvananthapuram emphasised that he is focused on taking the youths of the constituency forward and making sure there are more skills and investments in the area.

“Shashi Tharoor and Pannian Raveendran are old types of politicians. People who have made many promises but delivered nothing. I have a fresh approach to politics in Thiruvananthapuram. I make commitments and deliver to those. I do what I say. I am focused on taking the youth of Thiruvananthapuram forward, making sure there are more and more skills, investments and jobs,” he said.

Rajeev Chandrasekhar also highlighted that it is the election for who is going to be the Prime Minister. The primary consideration is to vote for and support PM Modi in his third term. (ANI)
