Shashi Tharoor said No I am not joining the BJP

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said that I am not joining the BJP. He said in a facebook post, In view of the number of people asking, let me repeat that my convictions are a matter of record and they do not match those of (the) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

He said, for 40+years I have spoken and written in defence of a pluralist India with equal rights for all its citizens and communities. On this, no compromise.

Previously Shashi Tharoor supported BJP and said, I have not disagreed with BJP on some issues like Swachh Bharat, but on the nature of India, its pluralistic and tolerant character, one has to be uncompromising.

He said also about Hinduism: This is not the Hindu religion I was taught. Hinduism believes in tolerance. Hinduism is openly welcoming... So, I have a Nehruvian view and on the basis of this belief, I have fought for a plural India.
