BJP leader and Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani sarcastically on Monday attacked Priyanka Gandhi Vadra , saying the latter was invoking her name more than she did of her husband Robert Vadra.
She also claims this is big achievement for herself as Priyanka Gandhi five years ago did not even know her name.
While on Monday poll was underway in Amethi Seat, the BJP candidate Smriti said before media, “Priyanka Gandhi takes more of my name than that of her husband. Priyanka Gandhi did not even know my name five years ago. But now she only reiterates my name. How big an achievement is this in itself?”
Irani is facing Rahul Gandhi from Amethi, where from Rahul has been winning the seat since 2004.
In last Lok Sabha poll he defeated Irani in Amethi. On the other hand; Robert Vadra, son-in-Law of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, fired a fresh salvo at Irani, asking her to concentrate on elections rather than taking jibes at him.
In a Facebook post published on Monday he wrote that the BJP leader must issue a clarification on her educational qualifications.
Vadra posted, “SmritiIraniji, with due respect, please concentrate on elections instead of taking jibes at me. India wants to know about your degrees or educational qualifications and the underlying controversy with it.”
He added that first you clarify that and then point finger at others. Awaiting to see if you are qualified. No disclosure means you are not.
