Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Saturday took to micro-blogging site Twitter to admit that he had made an error while commenting on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comments on Bangladesh. Tharoor tweeted that his response to the PM’s views on the Bangladesh war was based on just some hasty reading of newspaper headlines and thus erroneous.
The tweet by Tharoor came a day after the Congress leader on Twitter indicated that PM Modi had not acknowledged former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s contribution to help in liberating Bangladesh in 1971.
