A day after the BJP named Smriti Irani its Amethi candidate, she became the target of mockery from the AAP’s Kumar Vishwas. He told reporters it doesn’t matter “whether Irani comes, Pakistani comes, Italian or American comes… Amethi has already decided”. He added, “Rahulji is a political actor and Amethi is tired of actors… now another actor has come.

Irani hit back saying too much “leverage and importance is being given to Kumar Vishwas”. PTI quoted her as saying in Delhi, “I do not expect an iota of respect from him, especially being a woman. He has a history of being disrespectful towards women. That has been the topic of conversation in many channels.” She dismissed his candidacy: “I will only say that the contest is between the Congress and the BJP and not with any B team of the Congress.”

Vishwas too dismissed her. “My sympathies are with her,” he told The Indian Express. “She had declined to contest four days ago and she has been forcibly sent here; she has an enemy within the party.”

    Dear Mr. Kumar Vishwas, you mock Smriti Irani by calling her an actor turned Politician but u forget to look back at your background before commenting. Again when you mock Rahul hi by calling him novice and you repeat you mistake. Please introspect before you comment. I pity you !

    AAP is surping the Congress in heaping abuses and foul mouthing their opponents! Looks like they are capable of only that and have nothing to offer as constructive views or suggestions! Has AAP been reduced to party of thugs and goons besides a bunch of vicious jokers?

    Could Kumar Avishawas express solutions to many problems the people of Amethi have? His cheap and joker comments are not solution to any thing. People and media see a funny guy who want to be seen as carefree and not serious about decency, virtues and competency.
