Governor slams Tharoor, demands apology
Governor Acharya slammed senior Congress leader Sashi Tharoor for describing Naga headgear as “outlandish” and “hilarious” and termed it “unacceptable”, while asking him to seek apology from the Nagas.
Acharya remarked, on the sidelines of an awards ceremony, that there was an agenda behind Tharoor’s statement that could not be tolerated.
Pointing out that Tharoor was highly educated and a respectable person, an MP who had also served in the United Nations, the governor said a man of his stature should not be commenting adversely on the habit and culture of any community, adding this was not acceptable.
