Shashi Tharoor said ( about Daily ) : "Even though people of this country were given three days` notice before locking down for a mere 17-hour Janata Curfew on a Sunday when most individuals spend a lot of time at home anyway. A trial for a longer national lockdown what followed was horrific," "The Prime Minister in his address to residents of his constituency likened the disaster he had unleashed upon the nation to Kurukshetra. He said that Mahabharat took 18 days before victory was earned and tackling the COVID-19 will take 21 days. 180 days have passed, our national caseload is the second largest in the world and heading for number 1. Daily cases have nearly reached a lakh. The economy is in tatters having suffered a contraction far more severe than any other country," External link

Shashi Tharoor said : "At a time when the nation is facing such problems, when we are facing the worst ever unemployment figures in our country's history, when we are facing management of Covid-19, and Chinese aggression, we are instead of wasting time on the political abuse of one family which is not even present in the House," "To my mind, this is a sheer attempt by the government to distract the nation and Parliament from real issues being raised. They don't want a discussion, face opposition's criticism. All their interest is rushing their bills through without any objections from the opposition and they find excuses to wrap up the proceedings. That seems to be the only agenda," External link

Shashi Tharoor said : “A modern, effective and well-functioning airport is indispensable if we want Trivandrum to develop and grow. In my very many efforts to attract companies to come to the city and locate themselves here, many have told me that connectivity is a major disincentive. I have nothing against the state government. But, the state government is naturally interested in all four international airports equally. Whereas a private operator, even if it is only motivated by profit and greed, will have every incentive to make sure that Thiruvananthapuram does better than the others. We must have a competitive, modern and efficient airport, therefore let’s work to go ahead with the PPP model arrangement that the central government has indeed decided to give us,” External link
