Congress chief Shashi Tharoor as we speak apologised for getting a few of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s views on the Bangladesh warfare incorrect. He admitted his mistake saying it was based mostly on the “quick reading” of headlines and tweeted “sorry”. The Thiruvananthapuram MP’s put up got here a day after he posted one other one implying that PM Modi had not acknowledged former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s position within the liberation of the japanese wing of what was united Pakistan until 1971.
“I don’t mind admitting when I’m wrong,” Mr Tharoor wrote within the tweet as we speak.
I do not thoughts admitting when I’m incorrect. Yesterday, on the premise of a fast studying of headlines &tweets, I tweeted “everyone knows who liberated Bangladesh,” implying that @narendramodi had omitted to acknowledge IndiraGandhi. It seems he did: https://t.co/YE5DMRzSB0 Sorry!

Yesterday he had posted a tweet with the remarks, “International education: our PM is giving Bangladesh a taste of Indian ‘fake news’. The absurdity is that everyone knows who liberated Bangladesh.”
His tweet was based mostly on a information report which quoted PM Modi as saying that he had held a Satyagraha for Bangladesh’s liberation and had been even jailed for it.
“I was 20-22 years old when I, along with my friends, did Satyagrah for the freedom of Bangladesh. I had even been arrested for the same,” the Prime Minister mentioned throughout his speech in Dhaka on the event of the fiftieth anniversary of the nation.
Others, too, picked on the Prime Minister’s assertion.
The declare that ANYONE did satyagraha for the liberty of Bangladesh and had been arrested is simply too ridiculous to require refutation. https://t.co/yCDH20MtmG

Bangladesh received its independence in 1971 following a quick warfare between India and Pakistan. The nation is now celebrating the Golden Jubilee of its founding with Prime Minister Modi himself attending the proceedings in Dhaka. He is ready to satisfy Bangladesh Premier Sheikh Hasina as we speak.
