Watch: Giant slayer Smriti Irani takes oath as MP of Amethi, gets the longest applause by members of parliament

Besides Smriti Irani, Prime Minister Modi too was greeted with thundering applause as he took oath as a Member of Parliament.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, many a giants and dynasts were slain. The one battle that stood out was that of Amethi, the constituency that has been the bastion of the Gandhi dynasty. Smriti Irani fought a valiant fight and defeated the reigning MP from Amethi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi. On the first day of the Parliament session today, Smriti Irani was greeted with a long spell of applause when she walked up to take oath as an MP.


As can be seen, while Smriti Irani walked up to take the oath, the lower house erupted in applause for the MP of Amethi.

This would be Smriti Irani’s debut in the Lower House. While she was nominated as the MP in Rajya Sabha, this is the first time that the BJP leader has won an election.

In 2019, she defeated Rahul Gandhi from Amethi which is notably a key Congress bastion, by 55120 votes. In Modi Cabinet 2.0, she has been appointed as the Union Minister of Women and Child Development. Previously, she was elected as a member of Rajya Sabha in 2011 and was re-elected to Rajya Sabha in 2017.

Besides Smriti Irani, Prime Minister Modi too was greeted with thundering applause as he took oath as a Member of Parliament.
