New Delhi: Union Minister Smriti Irani, in a fresh attack at the Congress, on Friday said that people in their own constituencies don’t expect anything from them. What expectations will the nation have? Talking to news agency ANI, Irani said, “For years, Gandhi family has been representing Raebareli but still they’re never present to solve problems here.”
Union Minister made this remark when she was in Raebareli, which is the Lok Sabha constituency of Sonia Gandhi. She was here to inspect the Lalanganj Modern Rail Coach Factory.
During the inspection, she was very happy to see the smart coach and also asked GM Rajesh Agrawal of the factory to set up collaborative units soon so that people can get jobs.
Meanwhile, GM assured Irani that the resources of this factory are so strong and technically rich that we can also think of making bullet train coaches here in the future.
It is to be noted here that this is the second visit of Smriti Irani in one week. Ms. Irani had last visited Amethi on September 1 when she inaugurated an ambitious digital project launched by the Centre in Pindara Thakur village.
Later, Irani will be attending the convocation ceremony of the Rajiv Gandhi Petroleum Technology Institute in Amethi. District Information Officer Shiv Darshan Yadav said in a press release that the textile minister will be the chief guest at the ceremony.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader had unsuccessfully contested the 2014 general elections against Congress president Rahul Gandhi from this parliamentary constituency.
