DYFI flays Tharoor for his Twitter comment

india Updated: Sep 18, 2009 17:16 IST

CPM's youth wing DYFI criticised Union Minister Shashi Tharoor on Friday for his twitter comment on economy class, saying it amounted to insulting the people of the country as a whole.

The sarcastic comment of Tharoor betrayed his contempt for the poorer sections of people and reflected his "five star" culture, the DYFI state secretariat said in a statement.

It was strange that the Congress party had not even bothered to seek an explanation from Tharoor despite his "cattle class" remark, which drew flak from different quarters, DYFI said , addding that the Minister should apologise for what he had said.
