A message for Manish Tiwari

Although there were hundreds of angry messages for Manish Tiwari after his insensitive remark about the Pandit exodus but none better than Rahul Pandita's message published in the OPEN magazine.
We are posting it here for all our readers.

Care for a History Tutorial, Mr Tewari?

Spokespersons of political parties in India are not quite known for their sagacity. But if ever a foot-in-the-mouth award was instituted for the fraternity, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari would emerge as the winner.

Ever since he was given the responsibility of tomtomming his party’s achievements and point of view, Tewari has started putting up that I-know-it-all demeanour in TV studios. During a recent TV discussion on constitutional reforms, which veered towards Article 370 and ultimately towards the plight of Kashmiri Pandits, Tewari, in keeping with his self image as the most crafty spin doctor after Alistair Campbell, opined that J&K’s Pandits were driven out due to the fear psychosis of the then Governor, Jagmohan.

Obviously, Kashmiri Pandit groups are not amused. To add insult to injury, Tewari spoke rudely to an elderly Pandit the next day, who called him to register his protest. Tewari reportedly told him to “fuck off” before banging down the phone.

On social networking sites, Kashmiri Pandits are venting their anger. Calling Tewari’s statement sickening, actor Sanjay Suri, whose father was killed by militants in the early 1990s, wrote that Tewari ‘surely needs to get some history lessons’. One group has called for a protest outside the Congress office.
This is obviously no Tharoor-like situation for Tewari, who is still in 10 Janpath’s good books. But for someone whose father was killed by Khalistani terrorists, Tewari surely must update himself on terrorism. That is one thing that spokespersons like him will have to deal with for a long time to come. With or without constitutional reforms.

RAHUL PANDITA

Manish Tiwari suffers from MENTAL CONSTIPATION AND ORAL DIARRHEA . Apart from being stupid he is arrogant and tom toms himself with some self opinionated view of History and the country .
A stooge of Rahul and Sonia Gandhi, he projects as an intellectual who know all , except when ever he opens his foul mouth he puts both his feet with shoes in it.
He should know when to shut up.
However he is good for the country as people like him will bring the downfall of Congress and save the country .

Both Manish Tiwari and Digvijay Singh have brought down levels of political discussion to an all-time low. They have forgotten the language of civility and they behave as if the rest of the world does not know anything. Both leaders are extremely arrogant, aggressive and full of lies. I see them as fresh avatars of Mani Shankar Aiyer, another arrogant and all-knowing Congress-man. They exist in the political scenario because of their eternal servility to the Gandhi family.

I am not a Kashmiri Pandit. But watching Manish on TV has become irritating. He can spoil any good debate and has just got a single point agenda of pleasig Gandhis even at the cost of his self respect. I hope that the media and everyone else start bycotting him.
