Firstly, there has been a strong reaction from the Opposition, with many regional parties coming forward to support Congress and Rahul Gandhi. 

It included surprising support from the Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, whose party stated that they are defending democracy and preventing the misuse of autonomous institutions. 

This support is seen by Congress as an opportunity to create a united resistance against the BJP. 

Secondly, Tharoor noted that public sympathy is growing for Rahul Gandhi, with many people, including those who voted for the BJP, questioning whether it is good for democracy to silence the principal leader of a major Opposition party.


"Tharoor's leadership shines after the presidential election, calls for united opposition against BJP"

Tharoor's standing as a leader within and outside Congress has risen significantly after his strong performance in the party's presidential election against Mallikarjun Kharge. Tharoor believes that to restore its national image, Congress must communicate and collaborate with other opposition parties.
