The indian Congress  party took steps today to remove Shashi Tharoor as the party’s spokesperson, after the party’s Kerala unit reprimanded him for praising Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Indian media reports that Congress party president Sonia Gandhi has accepted the recomndation of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) disciplinary committee.

Kerala Congress leaders had alleged that there were repeated instances of the 58-year-old MP being seen as appreciative of the Prime Minister.

Issuing a media release MP Tharoor noted that, as a loyal worker of the congress party he accepts the decision of the party president.

The action against MP Tharoor comes at a time questions connected to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar at her hotel room in January have resurfaced.
