A video of Union Minister Smriti Irani wielding a couple of swords at a cultural progamme Friday in Gujarat has gone viral, with many on social media commenting on the minister’s performance.
The Union Cabinet Minister for Textiles, and Women & Child Development, was in Bhavnagar for a cultural event called “Women’s Uplifting Forum Program” that was hosted by the Shri Swaminarayan Gurukul.
During the cultural progamme that saw girls perform traditional dances, the organisers of the event requested the Amethi MP to join the female performers on stage for the performance of the traditional dance called ‘Talwar Raas’. This is a traditional folk dance form that is popular in Gujarat and Rajasthan.
Accompanied by dancers dressed in turbans and armoured vests, the minister was seen performing the dance with swords in both hands.
