Union Minister Smriti Irani to build a house at Amethi to be more accessible, does what Rahul Gandhi could not do in last 15 years

Gandhi family has been representing Amethi since 1980 with a brief break, but they always stay in a guest house during their visits

After her resounding victory against Gandhi scion Rahul Gandhi at his own bastion –  Amethi, Union Minister and Amethi MP Smriti Irani has decided to make Amethi her home by announcing that she will build her own house in the constituency to be more accessible to the people.

According to the reports, Smriti Irani has already identified a plot for the same in the Gauriganj locality of Amethi. The announcement was made in the presence of UP deputy CM and PWD minister Keshav Prasad Maurya at the inauguration of a Rs 30-crore road project. At the end of the programme, keys of houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojan were distributed among residents of Amethi.

Interestingly, Rahul Gandhi who had won three times from Amethi in 2004, 2009 and 2014, and Sonia Gandhi had won from the seat in 1999. Before that, Sanjay Gandhi had represented Amethi once and Rajiv Gandhi had won three times, 1984, 1989 and in 1991 post his assassination. Despite having such a long association with the place, the Gandhi family do not even have a house there. Instead, they stay at a guest house during their visits to Amethi.

Smriti Irani visiting her constituency for the first time after her victory against Rahul Gandhi assured the people that having a home in the parliamentary constituency will make her more accessible to them.

Meanwhile, the Union Minister also promised that those who voted for Rahul Gandhi will not be deprived of her welfare scheme. “I understand that there are some four lakh people who voted the Congress. They must not worry about benefiting from welfare schemes like Ujjwala, PMAY, and toilets under Swachh Bharat.”

Smriti Irani has time and again demonstrated her commitment towards the people of the Amethi. Despite losing to Rahul Gandhi in 2014, Smriti Irani chose to stay and work in the Gandhi bastion while vowing to return back to power by defeating Rahul Gandhi at Amethi. She had rented a house in Gauriganj in Amethi and stayed there.

Recently, Smriti Irani had even given her shoulder to the funeral procession of BJP worker Surendra Singh, who was shot dead immediately after the general election, resolving to bring the killers under the law.
