The Congress has hit back at Union Minister Smriti Irani after her allegations towards Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra on their land dealings.
Congress leaders Shakti Singh Gohil and Randeep Surjewala accused Smriti Irani of misusing her MP funds while citing the CAG report. They have demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi remove Smriti Irani from the Cabinet and to take action against her.
Shakti Singh Gohil said, “PM Modi had said that he doesn’t participate in corruption and neither does he let anyone else participate in it, but the truth is that the PM and his close friends earn more than crores but those who speak the truth are not able to eat in peace. Smriti Irani adopted a village after becoming a lawmaker, in fact, she did not adopt the village, but instead of helping the village, she put money inside her pocket. The collector of Anand district wrote a letter to the deputy secretary issuing the parliament fund. It was revealed in it that Smriti Irani scammed her MP funds.”
Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said that the Bharatiya Janata Party does fearful corruption. We demand that Mr. Modi sack Mrs. Smriti Irani immediately from the post of Union Minister and the case be registered in the 2nd section of the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Indian Penal Code. If required, we will file FIR against Smriti Irani through court.
