Senior BJP leader Smriti Irani indirectly trained her guns on Congress president Rahul Gandhi by saying that she has received the message of love loud and clear following the death of her close Amethi aide Surendra Singh.
As per media reports, Irani took on Rahul Gandhi’s “take care of Amethi with love” comment by saying that, “On 23 May, I was given a message that take care of Amethi with love. To the person, who gave me the message, I would like to say that I have received the message loud and clear”.
Singh, the former village head of Baraulia was instrumental in her campaign to distribute shoes to the underprivileged members of the community. This campaign had incurred the wrath of party general secretary Priyanka Vadra who had called it an insult to the people.
After his death, Irani rushed to Amethi and lent a shoulder to his mortal remains.
