Distributing shoes an insult to Amethi: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra attacks at Smriti Irani

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 22 Apr 2019, 01:06 pm

Amethi, Apr 22 (IBNS): Congress' eastern Uttar Pradesh chief Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday attacked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Amethi candidate Smriti Irani over the latter's distribution of shoes among people.

Priyanka accused Irani of insulting people of Amethi, from where Congress president Rahul Gandhi is contesting the Lok Sabha polls.

"The people of Amethi and Raebareli have never begged. Whoever is insulting you, you have to give it back to them," Priyanka has been quoted by NDTV.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Rahul, who is also Priyanka's brother, had defeated Irani in Amethi.

In response to Priyanka's comment, Irani has hit back saying as quoted by NDTV, "I was an actor, it is better if Priyanka doesn't do acting. The poor people didn't have footwear. She should go and visit Hariharpur, but she'd first have to ask the missing lawmaker where exactly Hariharpur is."

Apart from Amethi, Rahul this time is also contesting from Kerala's Wayanad.

The Congress chief's decision had drawn strong criticism from Left, which rules Kerala, and earned dig from the BJP.

Irani had said Rahul betrayed the people of Amethi and fled to Wayanad.
