It all began with a tweet by the former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi Who is the ‘real owner of the Kochi IPL team’. It marked the entry of a Dubai-based Kashmiri woman entrepreneur on the scene, Sunanda Pushakar. But the incidents that ensued after the IPL controversy, especially Tharoor’s link with Sunanda, led to his resignation from the post of the Union Minister of State for External Affairs.

Though Sashi Tharoor denied any connections with Sunanda Pushakar then, he married her in 2010 at his ancestral home in Palakkad.

Once the initial hubbub died down, the second controversy kicked off when Tharoor became the Union Union Minister of State for Human Resources. This time it was a tweet by Subramanian Swamy on a union minister who misused his office to get his son out of a UAE jail. Swamy did not name the Minister.

However, the tweet kicked up a controversy when Shashi Tharoor came up saying that he did not try to save anyone from jail. Later, Sunanda tweeted that her twitter was hacked and the message that came criticising Subramaniam Swamy on her account was not hers. The latest in the list was the tweet linking Pakistani Journalist Mehr Tarar.

Sunanda had accused that Mehr was an ISI agent and someone who was trying to rob her husband. But she clarified that every thing is well between her and her husband and that she had no plan to part with Sashi. She had also asked the media not to drag their family affairs in public.

Later, both jointly came forward saying that nothing was wrong between them. Shasi Taroor has 2,036,218 twitter followers.
