Congress general secretary Priyanka Vadra lashed out at Union Minister Smriti Irani on Monday (22 April) after the latter distributed shoes to the people of Amethi, ANI has reported.
#WATCH: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra,says,"Ye Smriti Irani ji yahan aai aur unhone joote baante ye kehne ke liye ki inke pas joote bhi nahi hai pehene ke liye. Ye soch rahi hain ki Rahul ji ka apmaan kar rahi hai, ye kar rahi hain Amethi ki janta ka apmaan." pic.twitter.com/G0bpG4SwpK— ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) April 22, 2019
In the video, a visibly upset Vadra recounted how Smriti Irani came to Amethi and distributed shoes to the people to prove that they don’t even own shoes.
Expressing anger, Vadra termed this as an insult to the people of Amethi who she asserted have “never begged from anyone”.
In response, Irani has urged Vadra to not create drama. Speaking about the poor people who don’t even have shoes to wear, Irani said that the Congress general secretary should go and find out the reality of the people’s living conditions.
