According to some of the visitors of Starbucks Cafe, Irani visits the place like any other common citizen of Delhi, and has never exhibited any VVIP characteristics. She also speaks to the staff and waiters in the most cordial manner.
Smriti Irani was recently dropped as the head of the HRD Ministry. The major cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was seen as a demotion of Irani. She was subsequently handed over the low-key Textile Ministry.
Immediately, after being appointed as the Textiles Minister, Irani took significant amount of steps to revive the handloom industry. The campaign initiated by her on social media #IWearHandloom has been positively received by the internet community. According to sources, she has been shifted to the Textiles Ministry to promote the use of khadi, one of the pet agendas of Prime Minister Modi.
