Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor took to Twitter to define a difficult word ‘snollygoster’, and Twitterati think that it is a jibe at Bihar CM Nitish Kumar. Tharoor, today tweeted: “Word of the day! Definition of *snollygoster*. US dialect: a shrewd, unprincipled politician. First Known Use: 1845. Most recent use: 26/7/17.” Janata Dal United supremo Nitish Kumar was in as the Bihar Chief Minister again, within a few hours of breaking ties with the previous Mahagathbandhan. Kumar, was earlier in an alliance with Lalu Yadav led RJD and the Congress party, but after his resignation, he joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form a new government. Meanwhile, the opposition has lambasted him on the sudden turn. Earlier too Tharoor has highlighted the importance of a presidential form of government, other wise he said ‘chatur’ politicians rule.

Pointing out the shortcomings of the Indian political system, Tharoor tweeted, “Our system allows the legislature to form executive, making it easy for parties to betray the wishes of the voters. BJP was rejected in election!” He added, “This is now the third time that BJP has formed a state government after losing an election. Goa, Manipur and Bihar show our democracy in poor light.” His earlier tweet read, “His full tweet read: “I have been arguing for a presidential system of directly elected leaders at all levels. That way the winner rules. This way, chatur pols rule.”


Meanwhile, on his ‘snollygoster’ tweet, Tharoor’s followers on Twitter had a field day and had some amazing responses. Some people suggested that it was not Nitish, but Lalu who was a snollygoster. Similarly, a there were a few who said that why did Congress not call Nitish a snollygoster when he was in an alliance with its party in 2015. Interestingly, a some of the users suggested their own words taking on Tharoor’s word. One of them tweeted: “I discovered Ozymandian. Suggesting or pertaining to a proud king whose empire and memory have long since crumbled into obscurity.” Meanwhile, another tweeted: “One word commonly used “Resurrect” please use it for ur party as it stares at existential crisis, and has left India with no opposition.”

Even after loosing election in Goa, Manipur and now Bihar after being rejected the BIG DIRTY BACK DOOR entrance by the DEVIL is seen PAYING ITS WAY INTO MORE POWER and Privileges to ULTIMATELY LOOT THE COURT Treasury by hook or by crooks . Wonder where all new NEW NOTES CAME FROM in BUYING MLA 25 crores to Follow hitler associate to take control of POWER. CITIZEN OF BHARAT MUST WAKE UP BEFORE ITS TOO LATE tO STOP THE ROT THAT HAS BECOME THE NORM OF THE THIS Govt run by COW masters with cow brains. Jai Bharatmamaji
