Shashi Tharoor said after being added to the Congress Working Committee, "Deeply humbled and grateful"


Shashi Tharoor, a Congress member, said on Sunday that he is “deeply humbled and grateful to be a part” of the Congress Working Committee, which is run by party leader Mallikarjun Kharge. The party’s employees, according to Tharoor, are its “lifeblood,” and without them, nothing would be possible. Tharoor said he bows to them.

“I am honoured by the decision of the Indian National Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and the Congress central leadership to make me a full-time member of the Congress Working Committee…I am deeply humbled and grateful to be a part of this major institution alongside my valued colleagues. I have to say that none of us can truly accomplish anything without the lakhs of committed party workers who are the lifeblood of the party. Today, above all, I bow to them”, MP Tharoor said.

Earlier today, Rajasthan Congress leader Sachin Pilot vowed to “strengthen the customs and ideology” of the party after being elected to the central leadership of the organization. Pilot expressed his gratitude to respected Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, CPP Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, and former President Rahul Gandhi for the decision to add him to the Congress Working Committee (CWC) in a tweet on X (formerly Twitter). We will all work to strengthen the Congress’ traditions and philosophy and advocate for it more forcefully to the populace.

In a significant development earlier today, Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge announced the members of the new Congress Working Committee (CWC) which has a total of 39 leaders including Shashi Tharoor, Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Pilot, Adhir Ranjan Choudhary, Jairam Ramesh, Naseer Hussain, Alka Lamba, Supriya Srinate, Pawan Khera among others.
