Open to public debate between Congress president poll candidates, will evoke people's interest in party: Shashi Tharoor

IndiaTimes Sunday, 2 October 2022
Set for an electoral face-off with Congress veteran Mallikarjun Kharge for the party president's post, Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor on Sunday said he would be open to the idea of a public debate between the candidates as it would evoke people's interest in the party similar to the recent British Conservative Party leadership race.Asked about Tharoor's remarks on holding a debate, Kharge, however, did not appear inclined towards having such an engagement.
