Union Minister Smriti Irani slams Sonia Gandhi led Congress party.

Union Minister Smriti Irani on Saturday accused former Amethi MP and Congress president Rahul Gandhi of using foul language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and resorting to lies to spread confusion in the country.

At this rate, the Congress will end up losing the Rae Bareli’s Lok Sabha seat too, represented by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, in 2024 elections, said Irani, who snatched Amethi Lok Sabha seat from Rahul Gandhi in 2019 general elections.

“Rahul Gandhi uses foul language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and is indulging in lies to create confusion in the country,” said Irani on the second day of her visit to her parliamentary constituency.

Irani who reached Amethi Friday on a three-day visit made the remark while addressing people after laying foundation stones of various developmental projects and inaugurating different welfare schemes in her constituency.

The Union minister alleged that the Gandhi family and Rahul Gandhi have knowingly thrown farmers and the poor in poverty to do their politics without any hurdles.

And for this, Amethi has already bid goodbye to Rahul Gandhi and Rae Bareli too would do the same to the Gandhi family in 2024, she said, claiming that her party will win the Rae Bareli seat too in the next Lok Sabha elections.

Irani said it was not easy for a woman belonging to a common family to fight against the Gandhi family.

“I have faced a lot of humiliation but it is the love of the people here that I am standing here as your MP,” she said.

“How can someone, who has never seen poverty, know the pain of the poor?” she asked, alleging that Rahul Gandhi has grabbed the land of farmers and snatched their rights.

“How can those living in palaces of gold know the plight of farmers?” she asked.

Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, who too was present with Irani, also charged the Congress with neglecting the development of Amethi.
