Union minister Smriti Irani took a veiled jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi and general secretary Priyanka Gandhi by saying that they are the people who wear ‘janeu’ once in the five years and comes for ‘ Ganga darshan’ only during elections.
She said that PM Narendra Modi is serving nation and hypocrites. Mahamilawati people and corrupt congress didn’t give him anything except insults. She added that ‘ they are the people who wears janeu once in the 5 years but goes on foreign tours for five years and come for darshan of Ganga at the time of elections’. She gave this statement in an election rally on Friday without naming anyone.
Smriti Irani also criticised Priyanka Gandhi for not choosing to contest from Varanasi loksabha seat.
She said that ‘ they are the peple who goes to Ayodhya but doesn’t bow their head before Ram lalla as they remember their vote bank. They’re people who ask in Amethi if they should contest from Varanasi but when it is time to draw swords in the battlefield, they leave not only Varanasi and Amethi but go to Wayanad.’
Everyone was speculating Congress might field Priyanka Gandhi from Varanasi and she also expressed her desire for that. However Congress fielded Ajay Rai from Varanasi. Congress president Rahul Gandhi is contesting from two lok sabha seats- Amethi and Wayand. Varanasi got polls in the last phase on 7th May. The counting of the votes will be done on 23rd May.
