PM Modi is like a ‘scorpion sitting on a Shivaling’ for RSS: Shashi Tharoor" width="740" />
“Modi is like a scorpion sitting on a Shivaling. You can’t remove it with your hand nor can you hit it with a chappal,” he said commenting on the dynamics between Modi and the RSS.
Tharoor added, “If you try to touch the scorpion, you will be stung, but if you hit a shivaling with the chappal, it undermines all the sacred tenets of the faith. That may well be an interesting clue to the rather complex dynamics that exists between the Hindutva movement and the Moditva expression on it.”
Tharoor said, due to Moditva, which is Modi plus Hindutva, he has been able to rise above RSS.
