NEW DELHI (TIP): Indian minister and former UN Under Secretary General Shashi Tharoor and his wife are once again in the limelight on Twitter. Tharoor has been accused of having a more than required relation on Twitter with a Pakistani journalist. With more than two million followers on Twitter, this is not the first controversy Tharoor has faced on the social media portal. He is India’s human resource minister and married Sunanda Pushkar, a former Dubai-based businesswoman, in 2010.
The allegations erupted after tweets appeared on Tharoor’s account on Wednesday, January 15, showing messages between Tharoor, 57, and Pakistani journalist, Mehr Tarar, which appeared to hint at a relationship between the two. He later announced that his account had been hacked and denied any affair. Pushkar also assured those concerned that all is well between the couple and there is no ‘marital discord’.
