The Congress Party on Wednesday asserted that there is no question of the Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD) Shashi Tharoor resigning from his post in connection with the recent death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the case is being examined by a sub-division magistrate through a magisterial enquiry, and added that there is no charge levelled by any individual, organization or any political party against Shashi Tharoor
“Shashi Tharoor is an integral part of the Congress Party. There is no charge levelled by any individual, or political party or organization or activists, viz a viz even a remote role in any alleged suicide or alleged murder of Sunanda Tharoor. Once there is no charge of any nature, nobody is alleging any role of Shashi Tharoor, why should he resign?” he asked
“The case is being examined by a magistrate in a magisterial enquiry. The truth will come out. Shashi Tharoor has himself written to the Home Minister requesting for expeditious disposal of enquiry,” he added
Earlier on January 20, doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) submitted the autopsy report of Sunanda Pushkar to a sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) here
Sunanda, 52, was found dead in her hotel room in Leela Palace in New Delhi's Chanakyapuri on Friday
Sunanda Pushkar had accused Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar of stalking her husband and trying to ‘break’ her marriage
Sunanda's final rites were performed at the Lodhi Road crematorium on Saturday afternoon.
