Shashi Tharoor, who lost his ministerial berth as a result of the IPL controversy, is courting yet another controversy after information gathered through the Right to Information (RTI) Act revealed that his name was included in the voters list flouting norms. An RTI application submitted by Kochi-based RTI activist Khalid Mundappilly, seeking details of inclusion of Tharoor's name in the voters list, proved that Tharoor was included in the list even though he could not establish that he had been a resident for six months at the address furnished in the application for including his name in the voters list.
