BJP leader Smriti Irani on Tuesday said the Congress president was quick to hug Prime Minister Narendra Modi but would run a mile when it comes to an income tax officer.
“Yesterday Delhi High Court and Raghuram Rajan presented another example of the corruption saga of Congress leaders mainly, Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra,” Smriti Irani said.
Continuing her tirade against Rahul, Irani said the Salon Assembly constituency of Rae Bareli district is a proof that “how despite representing the region for years, the Gandhi family failed to stand with the people in time of need”.
Smriti Irani claimed that during the UPA government’s term, railway coaches were brought to the factory from Kapurthala and shown as the achievement of the Rae Bareli unit.
With quirky captions and witty one-liners, actor-turned-politician Smriti Irani has shown her lighter side in the virtual world time and again, winning hearts online.
It was after perusing this report that then Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani had decided to set up a five-member committee to probe the various issues plaguing the NFAI, said sources in the ministry.
Meanwhile, some of the participants left the venue without attending the event, complaining that they were not given yoga mats.
The yoga day will be observed at Sector 17 Plaza where elaborate arrangements are being made. This year the cost of the event has been estimated over Rs 40 lakh, around Rs 10 lakh more than 2017.
Less than a month after she was moved out of the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry, Smriti Irani is no longer a special invitee to the NITI Aayog.
Smriti Irani also targeted Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) which is part of the “consolidated Opposition” for allegedly indulging in targeted killings of BJP workers in West Bengal.
Smriti Irani claimed that the previous textile commissionerate had no statistical data of the industry and a survey to gather the figures to help implement the schemes was recently conducted.
Use of certified seeds will naturally improve the crop quality, which in turn will help jute traders to go for enhanced diversification of jute products said the Union Textiles Minister.
June 1 will see the most press conferences — nine such events with Dharmendra Pradhan and Rajyvardhan Rathore along with others.
The party — an unusual gesture from the otherwise private and silent Sinha — comes amid reports that many officials of I&B Ministry, and officers of the Indian Information Services, are relieved with Irani leaving the ministry.
This is the second time that Smriti Irani has been moved from a key ministry as she was earlier shifted from the HRD Ministry to the relatively low-profile Textile Ministry.
