Congress MP Shashi Tharoor was on Monday removed as party spokesperson over his praise for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Tharoor's removal was recommended by a Congress disciplinary committee, which was later accepted by party president Sonia Gandhi.

The disciplinary panel  took up the issue following a complaint by the Congress' Kerala unit that his participation in the prime minister's Swachh Bharat mission upset party workers.

The three-member committee, comprising senior leaders Motilal Vora, AK Antony and Sushilkumar Shinde, looked into the entire matter, including Tharoor’s acceptance of Modi’s invitation to join the campaign.
