I feel insecure, worried about son's safety: Sunanda Pushkar

Dubai: Breaking her silence over her Rs 70-crore stake in the Kochi IPL team and her relationship with Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor, Sunanda Pushkar said here that she felt “insecure and vulnerable” and that she thought she would be “protected better.”

Speaking to The Indian Express here, the city she has lived in for the past 10 years, Pushkar said: "I am unsure of the situation and the mess it has created... I thought I would be protected better."

When asked what she meant by "being protected better," she did not elaborate.

"I have been inundated with calls from the press," Pushkar said. "I'm tired of phone calls," she said, adding she was "worried about her son's safety as well."

She has issues with the media. IANS quoted Pushkar as saying the media "was obsessively focussing on her personal life" and the suggestion that she was a "front" for Shashi Tharoor was "insulting."

Some Dubai residents who know her well said the description of her as a spa or a beauty salon owner was off-the-mark. Her principal professional activity in Dubai recently has been her employment as a sales manager in TECOM Investments.

TECOM Investments is a subsidiary of the Dubai government-owned Dubai Holdings. Started in 2005, it is responsible for running Dubai's business parks. Included in these are the Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City, Dubai Knowledge Village and Dubai International Academic City.
