Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani Thursday blamed the Congress for the farmers’ agitation, saying leaders of the party had been instigating farmers and trying to create a law and order situation.

Speaking in Thane at a party workers’ meet, she said the BJP-led government was doing great work, which was bothering the Congress. Irani said 5 per cent GST on cotton textiles was a progressive decision that would give impetus to the entire textile value chain.

She visited slums in Thane after the meet.
