Called on former @INCKerala President Thennala Balakrishna Pillai to seek his blessings for the contest. Good to see the “karanavar” of the party looking & sounding so well. He regaled me with tales of elections past. #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor

Touched by the rousing reception given to me by party workers at the ⁦@INCKerala⁩ headquarters today. These are all Mandalam Presidents, Block Presidents & regular colleagues from the grassroots, not grandees. #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor

Do please check the reality, @VidyottamaPS. Always better to check facts over 'perceived facts'? You can hang on to your admiration. Cc: @ShashiTharoor @KartiPC twitter.com/VidyottamaPS/s…

Unexpected moments: on my ⁦@IndiGo6E⁩ flight from Hyderabad to Tvm last night, Captain Inderpreet Singh announced a “special welcome” for me & the passengers applauded. Spent most of the flight giving selfies. But some young passengers still came clutching autograph books!

A year ago today, innocent farmers in LakhimpurKheri, protesting the injustices of the government, were run over by car driven by a BJP minister's son. Their loved ones are still waiting for justice. #RememberLakhimpurKheri

A supposedly verbatim transcript of an interview with the @NewIndianXpress attributes to me a phrase I’ve never used, allegedly calling @kharge ji “an ignorant agent of change”. I have never said that& don’t even know what it means. I demand an immediate correction! @PrabhuChawla

Farewell Hyderabad after a quick but useful visit! Off to Thiruvananthapuram tonight. Many thanks to the friends in @incTelengana who have become family now! #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor
Delighted to receive the endorsement of former MP & Indian cricket legend ⁦@azharflicks⁩ in Hyderabad today. Fit as ever & raring to go, Azhar joins me in wanting change & reform in our party so as to better equip us to take on the BJP. #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor
Great to catch up with my friend & colleague ⁦@Pallamrajumm⁩ in Hyderabad. We both support a stronger @INCIndia!
Afternoon musing: Cong leaders lining up behind Mr Kharge are calling @ShashiTharoor an ‘elitist’: since when did speaking English well, having a global outlook, embracing constitutional values become ‘elitist’? Many of our finest freedom fighters would then be elitist too!🙏

For those asking: I have already submitted my letter of resignation as head of @ProfCong to the Congress President last month.
I welcome this announcement by ⁦@INCIndia⁩ Chief Election Authority on the party’s presidential elections.
Wonderful to be received so warmly in Hyderabad for a brief visit. The enthusiasm of ordinary karyakartas has inspired me greatly as we move forward! #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor
My sincere condolences to my colleague @revanth_anumula on the sudden loss of a close relative. We will meet another time but I convey my best wishes to him & his team at @INCTelangana
Let me make clear that I agree with @kharge ji that all of us in @INCIndia wish to take on theBJP rather than each other. There is no ideological difference between us. The choice for our voting colleagues Oct17 is only on how to do it most effectively. #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor
Namaskar Hyderabad & thanks for the rousing reception on my arrival! #ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor
Thank you Maharashtra! Great to see so many Congressmen in Vidarbha. Will be back soon in the western part of the state!
Thanks for this great gesture @HarmonickaMaini ! I hope the students will be inspired by his life story… twitter.com/harmonickamain…
Through kindness, compassion & perseverance, you can change the world. #BharatJodoYatra #GandhiJayanti twitter.com/bharatjodo/sta…
Remembering India’s remarkable Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastriji, on his Jayanti. A man of rare integrity & scruple who had unshakeable faith in the Indian people. #JaiJawanJaiKisan
Thanks @pradyutbordoloi for this ringing endorsement! Let’s all strengthen the party together, @SalmanSoz! twitter.com/salmansoz/stat…
And of course it was a joy to join the singing of Gandhiji’s favourite bhajans!
After Sevagram, went to Acharya VinobaBhave’s ashram in Pavnar, from which Indira Gandhi derived so much strength during turbulent times for the Congress Party. Honoured to spend time w/ GautamBajaj ji, the longtime Trustee who has spent his life at the ashram alongside Vinobaji.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. ~ Mahatma Gandhi #GandhiJayanti
A moving experience to spend the morning of #GandhiJayanti in Sevagram, Wardha. Was awed to see his simple dwelling, the very cot in which he slept, the implements he used, the humble facilities there. Wrote my thoughts in the visitors’ book.
On the road to Wardha to visit Sevagram on #GandhiJayanti, delighted to congratulate ⁦@bhupeshbaghel⁩ on this excellent initiative by the Chhattisgarh government. Let us keep the spirit of Seva alive as Gandhiji embodied it.
With great pleasure @rejitweets ! Mine is a short book and in covering his whole life & legacy in 200 Pages I have devoted only a few mentions to workers’s rights & his Labour Party. Looking forward to greater details in yours! twitter.com/rejitweets/sta…
Mourning the passing of ⁦@b_kodiyeri⁩ , former Home Minister of Kerala & ex First Secretary of ⁦⁦@CPIMKerala⁩, who succumbed today to cancer after a brave long fight. We addressed a meeting together a few months ago in Thiruvananthapuram. A real loss. OM Shanti.
After paying tribute to Dr Ambedkar at Deeksha Bhumi, I was proud to present the very first copy of my book #AmbedkarALife on its first day of publication to the Trustees of this heritage spot. @AlephBookCo
Paid homage to the immortal Dr BR Ambedkar at Deeksha Bhumi, Nagpur, the very spot of his conversion to Buddhism in 1956. (More pictures to follow)
Paid homage to the statue of Rajiv Gandhi at Ajni Chowk, Nagpur — the man who built India’s bridge to the 21st century
Arrived in Nagpur to a rousing welcome as I start my campaign for the presidency of ⁦@INCIndia#ThinkTomorrowThinkTharoor
Colleagues from far and wide, thank you for your support for my candidacy. #ThinkTommorowThinkTharoor
I present my 60 nominees. 12 states, all levels of leadership but all proud @INCIndia workers. I thank them & the thousands of workers they represent for the faith they have placed in me. Thanks, my Parliamentrary colleagues, for yr unwavering support. #ThinkTharoorThinkTomorrow
An author, wordsmith, former UN diplomat and social media 'pioneer', @ShashiTharoor has demonstrated he is quite the opposite of a 'quockerwodger', and is instead independent minded. hindustantimes.com/india-news/sha…

Delighted to learn that, following scrutiny, Shri @kharge and I will be squaring off in the friendly contest for President of @INCIndia. May the Party and all our colleagues benefit from this democratic process!
