Did Nehru made it possible for ‘chaiwala’ to become PM?

Updated 14 Nov 2018 08:45 PM

Lauding country's first premier Jawaharlal Nehru for strengthening democratic institutions, Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, while taking a jibe at Narendra Modi, has said that a 'chaiwala' (tea seller) could become a Prime Minister only because of him.

Speaking about Nehru on the eve of his birth anniversary, the Thiruvananthapuram MP said: "If today a 'chaiwala' is the Prime Minister, it is possible because Nehru shaped the institution of the country in such a way that a common man could dream of sitting at the top post."
