Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu has demanded dismissal of Union minister Shashi Tharoor from the cabinet and registration of cases under domestic violence act against him in the wake of the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar on Friday night.

In a statement here on Saturday, he said Tharoor had a record of making statements that lowered the dignity of women. “There should not be any political interference in the investigation of  Sunanda’s death,” Naidu said.

Naidu said Tharoor who is known for his luxurious lifestyle had a supercilious attitude towards others. He had once described the economy class in flights as cattle class, thus insulting those who travelled by this class, Naidu pointed out and said it would be in fitness of things if he is dropped form the cabinet.
