People and politician was never a mutual discoverer-it is odd

In an interview to The Business Line Mr Sashi Tharoor says: 

"Do you think that you have too closely identified yourself with the US on several issues that, perhaps, you have also created some doubts in the minds of people? 

Many in the Left have been going around thinking that I am some sort of an American agent. I find this slightly odd because the Left was the first to correctly denounce the George Bush administration’s veto of me in the race for UN Secretary-General. If I were an American agent I would probably be there (the US) and not here... So this seems a slightly preposterous charge..."
