Amethi (Uttar Pradesh): In a scathing attack on the Congress leadership Union Textiles Minister and BJP candidate for Amethi Smriti Irani on Friday said that the more congress attacks her, harder she would work against them in Amethi. Her remarks come as the opposition launched “derogatory” remarks on her educational qualification.
“In the last five years, the Congress leaders did not leave even a single chance to insult and pass derogatory remarks about me. I only have one message for them: the more you insult me, the more you attack me, the harder I will work against Congress in Amethi,” Irani told the media.
The battle in Amethi has become tough for the Congress president over a period. While Gandhi had won the constituency by 3.7 lakh votes in 2009, the victory margin reduced to 1.07 lakh votes in 2014 when he was pitted against Irani. Irani, despite being defeated in 2014, has visited the constituency a number of times and has won the heart of people.
