A day after Smriti Irani filed her nomination from Amethi Lok Sabha constituency declaring that she did not complete her graduation, Congress’ Priyanka Chaturvedi has spoofed Irani’s hugely famous television show mocking the BJP minister.
In a video released by news agency ANI, Congress national spokesperson in a press conference hummed the title track of the show while changing the lyrics to mock the former HRD minister.
Chaturvedi is heard saying, “A new serial is going to come, ‘Kyunki Mantri Bhi Kabhi Graduate Thi”
She goes on to sing “Qualifications ke bhi roop badalte hain, naye-naye sanche mein dhalte hain, ek degree aati hai, ek degree jaati hai, bante affidavit naye hain. ”
