“Amethi People Showed You Magic”: Smriti Irani Responds to Rahul Gandhi | News from India

NEW DELHI: Union Minister Smrit Irani He struck Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha on Tuesday just hours after the Congress leader attacked Prime Minister Modi over the Adani issue.
Lashing out against the Gandhis, Irani claimed that for 30 years the people of Amethi a medical school was repeatedly promised, but only one family received a pension on the land allotted for it.
“There is an airport called Fursatganj. The land is government owned but the family has opened hostels in the name of son and daughter. PM does infra in the name of Subhas Chandra Bose, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel but hostels have been built there in the name of Rahul and Priyanka,” she said.
Targeting Rahul, the BJP leader said Amethi’s people showed magic in Congress when the party lost its deposit in four out of five assembly segments.
Irani used the term “magic,” which was used by Gandhi in his Lok Sabha remarks on Tuesday to describe the meteoric rise of industrialist Gautam Adani under the rule of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Irani had defeated Gandhi from Amethi, once a small district of the Gandhis, in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
He also said that one Nanhe Lal Mishra, suffering from a serious illness, was removed from the hospital built on the land owned by the “family” as he said he should be treated under Prime Minister Modi’s Ayushman Bharat programme. .
“I wish Mishra could have told the House but his voice will not be heard here because he is dead… These are the people who were attacking Narendra Modi, making fun of him, who allowed a gentleman to die. They still hold 40 acres of land,” Irani said, noting that it was Modi who gave a medical school to the people of Amethi.
Citing another case, he said “the family” invited people to open a factory, which suddenly closed and the land was taken over by the foundation.
“Farmers went to court against the family and got a court order, but they ignored and continue to occupy the land. And they come to Parliament and talk about the poor,” Irani said.
Refuting the opposition’s allegations, the Minister for Minorities said that the Modi government had done a lot for minorities and pointed to the new Haj policy, whereby application forms were made free of charge. He accused Congress of deceiving minorities over the years.
Irani also highlighted development projects undertaken in Amethi since winning the parliamentary seat in Uttar Pradesh in 2019 and accused the Gandhi family of hampering the constituency’s progress, despite representing it in the Lok Sabha for more than five decades.
Taking a jab at Gandhi over the Congress leader’s allegations against Modi, she said Hindi proverbs — ‘diya tale andhera’, ‘chor ki dadhi mein tinka’ and ‘ulta chor kotwal ko daate’ — came to life before her in Parliament on Tuesday.
Irani also praised the prime minister for his efforts to ensure that a tribal woman (President Droupadi Murmu) reaches the country’s highest constitutional office.
