“Will Defeat Rahul Gandhi Again In Amethi In 2024”: Smriti Irani’s Response On Allegations Against Daughter

Congress asked Prime Minister  Modi to dismiss Irani for allegedly running an illegal bar in Goa, which has denied the charges.

Mumbai: The Union Minister Smriti Irani slammed the congress by saying that her daughter is being targeted because she was vocal on Sonia and Rahul Gandhi’s “Rs.5,000-crore loot” in the National Herald case. She alleged that Congress has assassinated and publicly mutilated her daughter. Smriti Irani on Saturday rejected all the allegations against her daughter running an illegal bar in Goa calling it malicious.

She said that her daughter is 18 years old, a first-year college student and does not run any bar. She dared the opposition party to show any proof of her daughter’s wrongdoing.

“My daughter’s fault is that her mother holds a press conference on the loot of 5,000 crores by Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. Her fault is that her mother fought against Rahul Gandhi in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha polls,” the BJP MP  Smriti Irani said.

The BJP leader challenged Rahul Gandhi to fight again from Amethi in  Lok Sabha 2024 elections and vowed she would make him lose again.

“I will seek answers in court and in the People’s Court,” she said in response to the allegation.

Earlier in the day, Congress called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remove her from the post, saying her  daughter was running an “illegal bar” in Goa. The Congress called it a “very serious” issue and also shared a copy of the notice given to the bar association giving the reason for the show, and said the excise officer who made the opinion would have moved under the pressure of the authorities.

Congress spokesman Pawan Khera told reporters that there were serious corruption allegations against Irani’s family and  his daughter allegedly ran a restaurant in Goa where a bar operated under a ‘fake licence’ and that too on a person’s name who has died 13 months ago in May 2021, whereas the licence was taken in June 2022 illegally . He further added that as per Goa’s regulation a restaurant can get only one bar licence but this restaurant has got two bar licences.

To a question on Irani attacking Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader said, “There cannot be any comparison between something as noble as running a newspaper and something like running an illegal bar in Goa”. Hitting back, Irani said two middle-aged men dared to tarnish the dignity of an 18-year-old girl.

Irani asked, “Pawan Khera said my daughter had received a notice and had shown two documents. I want to ask you today where is my daughter’s name in these newspapers? ”

“Jairam Ramesh  has accused my daughter on the basis of RTI. I ask him if my daughter’s name is in that RTI? ”She further added.
