Rahul's activities not properly reported in media: Tharoor

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor today said party vice-president Rahul Gandhi has his finger on the pulse of some key issues but his "activities have not been fairly or accurately" reported in the media.

"To some degree I feel that his (Rahul's) activities have not been fairly or accurately represented or reported in the media," he said.

Gandhi has his finger on the pulse of "some of the hot issues in the country. He was in Mandsaur during farmers' revolt, he was first to identify the unrest on campuses typified by the Rohit Vemula tragedy, the Kanhaiya Kumar episode and the Ambedkar Periyar episode at IIT Madras," the MP from Thiruvananthapuram said.

"Which politicians went to those campuses, spoke out first?" Tharoor asked.
