Shashi Tharoor’s Savage Reply When Asked About British Contribution To India Will Make Your Day!
The Politician, acclaimed writer of 16 best-selling books, brilliant orator and the god of witty wordplay, Shashi Tharoor is back with his Badassery.
This time again, the full-time MP from Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram, slew it with his crisp facts on how Britain's drained India's wealth.
Shashi Tharoor, who was part of Australian TV Channel ABC News Q&A, was asked about where a man from the audience asked him if Indians should be thankful to the British for imparting knowledge in the field of Engineering, Infrastructure, and Education.
In his 2015 speech at the Oxford University, Shashi Tharoor explained the schematics of the economic toll that British rule took on India and he did it yet again.
In response to the question about engineering developments India has seen, Shashi Tharoor said, "All the Indian Institutes of Technology, the engineering achievements you're talking about were established after independence by the Government of India."
“Over 200 years of exploitation, depredation, loot and destruction, reduced it to a poster child for third-world poverty, just over three percent of global GDP, 90% of the population living below the poverty line when the British left in 1947,” Sashi Tharoor responded, while talking about how the British plundered India.
Shashi Tharoor went to say that education was the last thing on the British colonialists’ minds and that they left India with nothing at all.
