Priyanka takes on Smriti Irani


After Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani slammed the Gandhi family for non-redressal of Amethi’s issues yesterday, today Priyanka Gandhi Vadra reacted strongly to Irani’s statements.  Priyanka, accused Smriti Irani of not addressing issues related to the youth of Amethi.

“Why is Smriti Irani not addressing the issues of youth in Amethi, which come under her department?” Priyanka asked.

“Look around you and you shall see the answers,” she added on being asked if there has been an improvement in the condition of farmers in Amethi.

Smriti Irani also mentioned about this “war of words” on Twitter

Irani while announcing several schemes at a rally for the Amethi constituency, had stated that the NDA Government at the Centre had done more for the region than generations of the Congress’ first family. Priyanka, who currently on a two-day visit to her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency, rubbished Irani’s accusations and said since she (Irani) is now the Education Minister, what was the hassle in setting up IIIT in Rae Bareli as promised during UPA .
