"Deeply concerned by reports of 5 killed&50 injured in Pakistani shelling today. Over 100 ceasefire violations on LoC since BJP came to power!," Tharoor tweeted.

After the Congress criticism and the party not ruling out disciplinary action against him, the former Union Minister earlier in the day sought to put the record straight holding that he is a "proud Congressman" and had not even remotely endorsed the "Hindutva agenda" of the BJP.

Indicating that disciplinary action could be considered against Tharoor if he kept on lauding Modi's initiatives, KPCC Vice-President M M Hassan said "as a first step, we are asking him to stop praising Modi as his stance went totally against the Congress's ideals."

Expressing his strong displeasure, KPCC president V M Sudheeran said Tharoor should not be oblivious of the fact that he had been elected on the Congress ticket.

Sudheeran also indicated that, if necessary, disciplinary action would be initiated against Tharoor after consulting with other leaders if he kept on eulogising Modi.
