The Congress president Rahul Gandhi was expected to visit Amethi on Friday, but he postponed it by a few weeks.
Attacking Rahul for delaying his visit to Amethi by a few hours, Smriti Irani said, “His coming late in ‘maidan-e-jang’ (battle field) of Amethi is an indication that the person who cannot visit his constituency on time cannot give timely solutions (to problems).”
Smriti Irani taunts Rahul Gandhi in Amethi
The Union Minister who was in Amethi to inaugurate a CT scan unit at Gauriganj, said that it is for Rahul to answer why Congress leaders were “creating hurdles in the judicial process in the Ram temple case through its lawyers” and said “Ram bhakts should ask the party about it”.
She said that though Prime Minister Narendra Modi had already spoken on it, she would reiterate his statement: “People and Ram bhakts should ask the party whether its leader wore ‘janeu’ (sacred thread) only for the polls in three states.”
She accused Gandhi of doing nothing for his constituency
“Jo paanch saal me ek baar aatey they, ab baar baar aana pad raha hai” (The person who used to visit his constituency once in five years is coming here again and again),” she told reporters on way to Amethi.
Irani said such was the pace of development in Amethi, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Congress leader felt nervous and was making frequent visits to the constituency to counter it.
She accused Gandhi of doing nothing for his constituency, which he has been representing for the past 15 years.
“If Rahul had done so much for Amethi, why his party lost in so many assembly segments of the Lok Sabha constituency in the 2017 assembly polls,” she asked.
“Rahul speaks of development, but could not ensure it in his own constituency. In fact, he could not even get a CT Scan machine installed in Amethi, which the BJP government is doing today,” she said. Also Read: Smriti Irani Brutally Insults Rahul Gandhi! Watch Video
Although the Union Minister was defeated by Mr Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, she kept visiting the constituency.
Irani continued to cultivate Amethi during these years, dropping enough hints that she will once again contest against Rahul Gandhi in the polls.
Interestingly, this will be the first visit by the Congress president to his constituency after his party tasted victory in the recent Assembly elections which, many believe, has rejuvenated the party cadre as well as its leaders. Also Read: Smriti Irani Caught Sharing Fake News On Rahul Gandhi
