Let us move forward by first adding false information.
Wonder how the ruckus between Modi & Tharoor got so glorified? Well when the initial blame game started there was not much to talk about them. Heck there was not even an issue between them still they were talking & the media was reporting that these two charismatic personalities are banging heads with each other. Now was the time to add some spice. So Tharoor used his influence & got the I-T sleuths to check on Modi. This harrowed Modi and threatened to show his hidden skeletons. Along with punching his reputation. It was an indirect move by a government official that too a minister. The I-T sleuths captured his HQ at BCCI building, his Worli office & even his hotel room. When some un-bribe-able governmental people knock on the bedroom it is a sign of ensuing insult. This is a heavy blow not withstanding of how clean a citizen is a visit from the I-T department never sounds good.
Not to be outdone Modi told his men in the parliament to throw a commotion in the parliament. There was a big pandemonium thrown by the illiterate class of politicians. Heavy language was lunged in vernacular by the cattle class. No work was done in the parliament due to the uprising caused by the internal affairs of a private consortium. The well of the house was thronged by the opposition. The speaker was not given a chance to speak in the humdrum. All that Modi had to do was fill the pocket of one leading opposition member. The rest followed like a house of cards caught in a gale. The attending members incessantly demanded Tharoor’s statement & resignation. When Mr. Tharoor came to the house to address the concerns even then they were least bothered to give an ear. Modi knows that Tharoor is answerable to his top brass. Even if there is no matter then at least the question of party image is brought up & it is there that Tharoor is caught dumfounded.
Lip smacking moments come when both hit each other below the belt. That is the germ of sensationalism. All this just because of some unwarranted talk doing the rounds. It is like calling your Boss a Bastard. No matter the whole floor might be calling him a bastard but he shouldn’t hear it in first person. Because then will take it as a personal insult. This was exactly what was happening. One private entrepreneur & one minister were carrying on contradicting each other through phones, messages, tweets, media etc. It was elementary to raise it to the next level of a national scale. Only when there are enough eyeballs shall one throw the other into obscurity. Doing it behind closed doors robs it of its chaska. This on going saga is nothing new in the chart of controversy. It is the normal flow of things. Now since naxals are not gunning down our sitting ducks (CRPF) then there has to be some information that can be branded as Breaking News & sold. This is that. Since not every channel has the rights of IPL so the poorer news channels are playing the story of Modi vs Tharoor to gain some TRPs.
I feel ashamed to live in such a country where such practices are the norm.
Now, the problem here is that this isn’t necessarily all just fiction. There are truths in the lies that are now travelling at hyperdrive speeds between Lalit Modi and Shashi “Naughty Boy” Tharoor.
