Rahul Gandhi's north-south remark an 'insult' to people of Amethi, says Smriti Irani
Amethi: Union Minister Smriti Irani launched a scathing attack on former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday (March 6), accusing him of "insulting" the people of Amethi by comparing voters in north India with those in Kerala.
Irani, who laid the foundation stone for a bus stand in Tiloi in Amethi, said the people of the town gave Gandhi, the former Amethi MP, immense love for 15 years despite him "not doing anything for its development".
Irani wrested Amethi from Gandhi in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
"It is wrong for Rahul Gandhi to say that there is a lack of understanding among the people of Amethi as compared to those in Kerala.
