Telangana MLA Jokes Shashi Tharoor Has Named Unpronounceable Medicines, Shashi Tharoor Reacts

In the times of the coronavirus pandemic, we have learnt a number of things such as cooking, gardening and so on. It won’t be wrong to say that we have become more responsible towards our body and have started caring it in a better manner than we used to do earlier by increasing our immunity. The situation in the second wave has been quite serious and we have got to hear the names of many medicines and injections which are quite necessary for saving a COVID-19 positive patient.

The names of some medicines are very difficult to pronounce and one MLA from Telangana, K.T. Rama Rao brought up this issue on the micro-blogging site Twitter in a funny manner as he asked who has come up with unpronounceable names for the medicines.

KTR tweeted, “On a lighter note, any idea who comes up with this unpronounceable names for meds?- Posaconazole, Cresemba, Tocilzumab,  Remdesivir, Liposomal Amphoterecin, Flavipiravir, Molnupiravir, Baricitinib, And the list goes on…”

In his second tweet, KTR suggested in a funny manner that Congress politician and MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, may be behind naming these medicines. KTR tweeted, “I suspect @ShashiTharoor Ji Pakka has a role to play in this”.

Shashi Tharoor is known for his impeccable English vocabulary and it won’t be wrong to say that sometimes it is impossible to understand what he said or wrote without the help of dictionary.

Soon the tweet was noticed by the Congress leader and he made it clear that he is not behind the names of these medicines but in his own style as he wrote, “Not guilty! How can you indulge in such floccinaucinihilipilification, @KTRTRS? Left to me I’d happily call them “CoroNil”, “CoroZero”, & even “GoCoroNaGo!” But these pharmacists are more procrustean….”

Twitterati also expressed its thoughts and views and here are some of the selected reactions:
