In five years, I have made Amethi ready for a BJP win: Union Minister Smriti Irani

Irani was speaking at the Hashtag Social Media Summit in New Delhi on Saturday

“Who will contest from where in upcoming poolls is something the party will decide but one thing is for sure that in five years, I can say I have made Amethi ready for a BJP win. When a farmer is given a futile land, which has not been irrigated in years, which has not been nourished and nurtured in years, this farmer can at least tell one thing that in five years, having put in tremendous hard work, I have made that seat ready for a BJP victory,” said Union Minister Smriti Irani at the Hashtag Social Media Summit on Saturday in New Delhi.

Coming down heavily on Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s insensitive remark on Air Force pilots, Irani said, “This is a man who sits on a public platform and says that if you are killed in a plane crash, this money can go to your family.” She added that this is not something to laugh about since apart from politics, if you look at it from humanity angle, it shows his mentality.”

“Okay, so you will die, we will send the money. That man (Rahul Gandhi) has given you a glimpse of his thoughts and mentality,” she added.

Irani was referring to the crass comment made by Congress President Rahul Gandhi while putting out false allegations regarding Rafale deal with help of a maliciously cropped dissent note which was published by The Hindu. Rahul Gandhi had held the cropped note and said that this document proves that Modi has stolen ₹30,000 crore and given to Anil Ambani. Addressing personnel from the Air Force, Rahul Gandhi said that this ₹30,000 crore could have given to fighter pilots when they die in a plane crash.
