Union Minister Smriti Irani, hitting out at former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, called him as 'Nikamme Sansad' or incompetent MP on Wednesday. For the unversed, Smriti had earlier defeated Rahul in Amethi in the last Lok Sabha elections in 2019, but today said that he had insulted the people of Amethi.
She said that Rahul has expressed his hatred for Uttar Pradesh after losing the Lok Sabha election. He has been pretending for years in public and has now shown the true colour of the divisive politics of Congress. In Assam, the 50-year-old insulted the people of Gujarat and extended support to the 'Tukde Tukde gang', said the Union Minister, adding "Amethi gave him everything but he preferred to run away."
"Amethi has tolerated a 'Nikamme Sansad' for 15 years and when failed to serve his agenda in north India. He is now showing the divide and rule mindset of the Gandhi family," Smriti said. "Why are Priyanka and Sonia Gandhi silent on Rahul's statement?" she asked, adding that she can't and will not tolerate the insult of Amethi, which is her family.
