New Delhi: Congress leader who often stirs debate on social media forums by using difficult and obsolete words of English language Shashi Tharoor (Shashi Tharoor) on Friday used the word ‘Snollygoster’ while taunting the politicians who give importance to their interests, after which the discussion started again among the social media users. Tharoor used the term on Twitter, taking a dig at such leaders in the backdrop of several leaders switching sides in the assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Know the meaning of the word ‘Snollygoster’

Let us tell you that according to the dictionaries of the English language, the word ‘Snollygoster’ is used for such a leader who is more concerned about his personal benefits than serving the people. By the way, Tharoor has used the term twice in the past on social media. In 2017, when Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar left the grand alliance and formed the government with the BJP, he had used this word at that time also.

Subsequently, in 2019, in a shocking political development, when BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Nationalist Congress Party leader Ajit Pawar as Deputy Chief Minister, Tharoor used the term ‘snollygoster’.

Tharoor’s name is not in the list of star campaigners of Congress
At the same time, let us tell you that Congress on Tuesday released the list of its 40 star campaigners for the first phase of Gujarat assembly elections, which includes party president Mallikarjun Kharge, former president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and many other senior leaders. But Shashi Tharoor’s name is not there. In such a situation, the discussion has gained momentum that Tharoor is being sidelined in the party. Tharoor has declined the invitation of the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) to attend a campaign event in Gujarat, saying his name does not figure in the party’s list of star campaigners.

Asked if he was disappointed that his name was not included in the list of star campaigners, Tharoor said, “The Congress knows who and what is best for it.” In such a situation, there is no point in being disappointed.
