“There are no jobs, I come everyday to try and find work - nothing. How is my family to survive?” Met this man during my recent visit to @AIPCJHR - he came up to me and said, tell them in Delhi not to forget about us. #NationalUnemploymentDay

#NationalUnemploymentDay More than 10,60,139 posts of teachers, 1,07,000 posts in the Indian army are vacant. But unemployment is at the highest level ever recorded. Let's hold this callous & inept government accountable for its unsympathetic deeds! #?????????_????????_????

A real shame. For temporary PR gains, the nation's credibility is sacrificed.…
~@ShashiTharoor: The north-south divide driven by Hindi-Hindutva-Hindustan is a challenge to federalism. This piece raises very serious issues about India’s future. I am glad leaders from the South are fighting for their just cause.…

Painful reading: searing analysis by @ShoaibDaniyal of the shameful ongoing assaults on Muslim Indian entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, hawkers &others trying to make a living:… What do these bigots want to do? To create an impoverished, alienated minority? Sick!
Wishing @narendramodi ji happy birthday & many healthy years in the service of the nation. May he be able to work more successfully in the next two, to ensure that Vikas actually dawns in our country& is truly “sab ka”& “sab ka saath”! May he create work for the Indian people too
Delighted to see the cover of @UnamPillai’s new book #FalseAllies — India’s Maharajahs in the age of Ravi Varma, a fascinating theme. Looking forward to his usual limpid prose and compelling story-telling!

Shashi Tharoor won three consecutive elections in a bastion of communism. I have toured his constituency. The claim that he's out of touch with the public is made only by hopelessly incompetent politicians with a colossal chip on their shoulder.

Agreed, @milinddeora! Such are the ways of our media experts….…

I think the larger meaning of what @RahulGandhi said was clearly apparent from the context in which it was embedded. Tweeting a couple of lines from any speech with an emoji isn't journalism. It's not even commentary. It's just bias.…
@ShashiTharoor @revanth_anumula @INCIndia I really appreciate this. People make mistakes in life. But to realise and rectify is being gracious
Retweeted by Shashi Tharoor
I received a gracious call from @revanth_anumula to apologise for what was said. I accept his expression of regret & am happy to put this unfortunate episode behind us. We must work together to strengthen @INCIndia in Telengana & across the country.…
I couldn’t agree more. @ShashiTharoor is a terrific leader who isn’t about to join a race to the bottom. He is one of the foremost critics of the RSS & BJP. He fights for India & INC everyday. Party leaders must be careful not to alienate our own. @RahulGandhi…
