New Delhi: Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Friday came up with his unique take on the row over Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s posture during a video conference with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Tharoor, whose posts more often than not require the reader to refer to a dictionary to be able to make sense of his comments, framed a five liner poem on the controversy surrounding the Delhi Chief Minister.

There once was a CM of Delhi

Who stretched from his head to his belly;

The onscreen reticulation

Revealed his pandiculation

So BJP frothed & quivered like jelly!

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the chief ministers of all the states to review the Covid-19 situation in the country and also appealed to the non-BJP ruled states to cut down on state levies on fuel prices.

A video of the virtual meeting between the chief ministers and PM Modi went viral when Bharatiya Janata Party’s IT cell head Amit Malviya shared a clip, pointing out Kejriwal’s sitting posture which he termed as “uncouth mannerism”.

The video shared by Malviya showed the various sitting positions of the Delhi chief minister during the interaction as Kejriwal could be seen sitting and stretching his upper torso, and later with arms crisscrossed behind his head, leaning back on his chair. Whereas, all other state CMs were seen sitting up straight in keeping with the formal meet.

Amit Malviya captioned the video, “Arvind Kejriwal continues to disgrace himself with uncouth mannerism…”

Amid the row, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal got featured in Shashi Tharoor’s poem that he wrote pointing out his sitting posture during the meeting and how it irked the BJP leaders.
