Days after he left many Congressmen guessing with his praise of PM Narendra Modi, former union minister Shashi Tharoor has now praised HRD minister Smriti Irani.
After a meeting with her on Thursday, Tharoor tweeted, “enjoyed a good meeting with Smriti Irani on India’s educational challenges. Appreciate an engaged & receptive Minister. Best wishes for MHRD.”

Tharoor was, however, quick to clarify it with another tweet. “To all the cynics: my last tweet was not a blanket endorsement of anything Smriti Irani or her Govt may do in future. It’s called civility.”
