Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore to Shashi Tharoor

BJP MP Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore shot back at Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, who, on Twitter, rebuked major brands for "financing hate through ads." Rathore replied to Tharoor's tweet, asking him to not pass judgements on a case that's already under the scrutiny of the Parliamentary Standing Committee, of which the latter is the chairman.

INC MP Tharoor addressed Raymonds, Muthoot Group, Jio, Max Bupa, Kent, Air India, Star Health, Star Health Insurance, Nissan, Dabur, Mahindra, Amazon, Samsung, Sony, Maruti, Nerolac and Toyota in his tweet, comparing them to Parle who took a stand against television news channels who promoted "toxic content."

Recently, the Mumbai Police claimed that it unearthed a racket where certain TV news channels were manipulating TRPs. Following this, brands like Dollar, Amul and Bajaj other than Parle had decided to stop giving their businesses to these channels.
