Amethi: Narendra Modi today took a swipe at Priyanka Gandhi for her Smriti Irani “who” comment, saying this was a reflection of “arrogance” and asserted that she was his “younger sister” and “representative” who knows much more about Amethi than the entire Gandhi family.
Apparently agitated at Priyanka's remark, the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate said he had chosen Smriti for Amethi to tend this constituency which is the “most backward” despite being represented by the Gandhi family four 40 years.
Addressing a rally in the Gandhi family bastion here, Modi said, “One of their (Congress) leaders even asked who is Smriti Irani? In democracy the royals do not have the right to ask such questions. This is nothing, but arrogance. When arrogance grows, people tend to lose their sense and they ask such questions.”
