New Delhi: Following a spike in the pollution level in the national capital, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor on Saturday posted a picture on his twitter handle which says 'Delhi is injurious to health'.
He posted a picture with Delhi's famous monument Qutub Minar in a cigarette box and some lines in Hindi which roughly translate to - How long will you live on cigarettes, bidis, and cigars. Just come and spend a few days in Delhi-NCR region: Delhi Tourism.
Many people reacted to Tharoor's tweet. Some felt that it was politicising the issue.
