Shashi Tharoor justifies British Parliaments right to discuss agricultural reforms
We Care...!!!

NEW DELHI: After New Delhi summoned the UK envoy on Tuesday over “unwarranted discussion” within the British Parliament on agricultural reforms in India, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor justified the controversy, saying that in a democracy you’re free to debate no matter you need.
“Just as we, in India, can discuss say the Palestine-Israel issue as we’ve done in the past or we can discuss if we so choose any other domestic issue of a foreign country, British Parliament has the same right,” stated Tharoor, who was additionally MoS External Affairs throughout the UPA regime.
“I don’t blame the Government of India for doing its job, for speaking up for its point of view. But we must recognise there is another point of view and that in democracies, elected representatives are free to air their points of view,” he added.
“I don’t think there is something so surprising. We should take it as normal give and takes that happen between democracies,” added Tharoor.
India had summoned British High Commissioner over an “unwarranted discussion” within the British Parliament on agricultural reforms in India.
Farmers have been tenting at a number of Delhi border factors for over three months now demanding a whole repeal of the three farm legal guidelines.
The Ministry of External Affairs on Tuesday “conveyed strong opposition to the unwarranted and tendentious discussion on agricultural reforms in India in the British Parliament”.
“Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla made clear that this represented a gross interference in the politics of another democratic country. He advised that British MPs should refrain from practicing vote bank politics by misrepresenting events, especially in relation to another fellow democracy,” the assertion stated.
