NEW DELHI, Aug 20: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor Sunday said he was honoured by party chief
Mallikarjun Kharge and the central leadership’s decision to nominate him to the working committee
and asserted that countless Indians who seek a more inclusive India “deserve the best” from the
party.

Kharge on Sunday reconstituted the party’s top decision-making body, the Congress Working
Committee (CWC), with 39 members, 32 permanent invitees and 13 special invitees.
Tharoor, who unsuccessfully ran for the post of Congress chief against Kharge in the internal polls
last year, has been included in the committee along with the likes of Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan
Singh, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, K C Venugopal, P Chidambaram and Sachin Pilot,
among others.
“I am honoured by the decision of the @INCIndia President Shri Mallikarjun @Kharge ji and the
Congress central leadership to nominate me to the Working Committee,” Tharoor said in a post on
X.
“As one who is aware of the historic role played by the CWC in guiding the party over the last 138
years, I am humbled and grateful to be part of this institution, and look forward to the opportunity
to serve the party alongside my dedicated colleagues,” the MP from Thiruvananthapuram said.
He said, “None of us can accomplish anything without the lakhs of committed workers who are the
lifeblood of the party. Today, above all, I bow to them. The countless Indians who seek a more
inclusive and accepting India deserve the best from us.”
Tharoor was part of the group of 23 leaders that had raised questions on the Congress’ leadership
under Sonia Gandhi. (PTI)
