Congress divided in its stand: Sibal & Tharoor back Vir, Singhvi slams him

NEW DELHI: Under attack for his monologue “I come from two Indias”, stand-up comic Vir Das has found backing in Congress leaders Kapil Sibal and Shashi Tharoor but criticism from their party colleague Abhishek Manu Singhvi for “vilifying the nation”. As the issue gathered steam, senior Congress leader Sibal on Wednesday tweeted that none can doubt that there are two Indias. “…Just that we don’t want an Indian to tell the world about it. We are intolerant and hypocritical,” he tweeted.
In a tweet, Tharoor praised Das as a stand-up comedian who knows that the real meaning of the term “stand up” is not physical but moral. Das spoke for millions in the six-minute take on the ‘Two Indias’ he hails from and stands up for, he said.
However, Singhvi hit out at Das, saying that “generalising the evils of a few individuals and vilifying the nation as a whole in front of the world is just not done”.
