Congress MP Shashi Tharoor pointed out an error in names of Kerala and Tamil Nadu while sharing an image of a poll run by a government website (mygov.in). The Member of Parliament from Thiruvananthapuram said “Dakshin Bharatvasis” would be grateful if the “Hindi Rashtravadis” running the platform could take the trouble to learn the names of our states.
The poll had asked people to vote for their favourite tableau at this year’s Republic Day parade.
“All of us Dakshin Bharatvasis would be grateful if the Hindi Rashtravadis running http://MyGov.in could kindly take the trouble to learn the names of our states. Please!? (sic)" Tharoor tweeted while sharing the photo in which Kerala was spelt as “Kerela” while Tamil Nadu as “Tamil Naidu”.
