Veteran singer Asha Bhosle on Thursday arrived in the National Capital to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi. The event was held at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan. However, after the grand ceremony concluded at 9 pm, Bhosle was left stranded. However, Union Minister and former actor Smriti Irani came to her rescue.

Bhosle took to Twitter and wrote, “I was stranded in the crazy rush post PM oath ceremony. No one offered to help me except @smritiirani who saw my plight & made sure I reached home safely. She cares & that’s why she won.”

Smriti Irani replied to Asha Bhosle with a folded hands emoji. Later in the day, Irani congratulated Narendra Modi and Amit Shah.

Envisioning a better India under the ‘stewardship’ of PM Modi, the actor-turned-politician tweeted, “My heartiest congratulations to PM @narendramodi ji on taking oath as Prime Minister of India for the second time in a row with a historic mandate. Under his stewardship, India will scale greater heights. #ModiSwearingIn.”
