New Delhi, Feb 24: Human Resource Development (HRD) minister Smriti Irani went all gun blazing agianst Congress led Opposing, who have been accusing the union minister of saffronising education system in India. Smriti Irani lost her cool while replying to Opposition’s allegations and expressed extreme anguish. First, Smriti Irani got in heated discussion with BSP supremo Mayawti in Rajya Sabha over Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula’s suicide.
When Mayawati raised the issue of Vemula’s suicide, and blamed the central government for it and asked if the committee probing the incident had a Dalit member, visibly agitated Irani first challenged BSP leader Satish Chandra Misra. “Talk face to face Satish ji, I am ready to reply,” Irani said. “Mayawati ji, I request, you are a senior member and a woman, you want an answer, I am ready to reply. If you are not satisfied with my answer, I will cut my head and put it in your feet,” the minister said.

The aggressive behaviour of Smriti Irani continued in Lok Sabha where she bashed Congress leader and opposition parties for for allegedly introducing an anti-Hindu propaganda in the nation’s education curriculum. She articulated reasons why the Government cracked down on JNU students Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and their associates.
“Rahul Gandhi makes baseless allegations that BJP government has appointed RSS-linked Vice Chancellors as part of our agenda to saffronize the education curriculum. I would challenge him today. At least 16 VCs in Central Universities are those who were appointed during the erstwhile Congress rule. If anyone of them could prove that I have launched a saffronisation campaign in the education sector, I would quit public life forever.” she said.
