Union Minister Smriti Irani once again on Thursday attacked Rahul Gandhi and said Congress president insulted Amethi by going to Wayanad.

“Rahul Gandhi enjoyed a position of power for 15 years because of the support from Amethi, However, now he is going to file nomination from elsewhere. This is an insult of Amethi and people here will not tolerate this,” she said.

Irani will begin on Thursday a two-day visit to Amethi, Uttar Pradesh. Amethi is the Lok Sabha constituency of Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

Party convenor of Amethi Lok Sabha seat, Rajesh Agrahari, said Irani will be addressing a Kisan Rally in Parshedpur under the Amethi parliamentary constituency, reported PTI.

She is the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) candidate for Amethi this time again. In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Congress chief had defeated Irani by a margin of over 1.07 lakh votes, retaining the Amethi seat.
