Lauding the hard work put in by Union Minister Smriti Irani for the development of the constituency, he referred to her as the sister of Amethi and pointed out that the "culture of middlemen propounded and patronized by the Congress had come to an end now".
For a change, Rahul Gandhi, who never loses an opportunity to target the BJP, thanked the saffron party for launching regular attacks on him and acknowledged that he had benefitted from the Congress' stunning defeat in the 2014 national polls.
During the 2014 Lok Sabha election, Amethi stood witness to a high-pitched electoral tussle between Irani and Rahul.
According to the Newspaper, He added, "It is an honour for us that Rahul Gandhi was made Congress vice-president during the party's "Chintan Shivir" held in Jaipur". "I congratulate the BJP in Maharashtra and the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for the impressive performance in Gram Panchayat polls across the State", said Modi on his Twitter handle.
The remark drew immediate condemnation from the BJP with Union Minister Smriti Irani terming them as "indecent" and that if Gandhi believes that wearing shorts is a sign of empowerment of women in India, she condemns the notion, while her colleague Prakash Javadekar accused Gandhi of not knowing how RSS works. Khakhi shorts were a trademark RSS uniform for drills, worn with pride by many BJP icons including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, before the organisation embraced a new look past year. "There are farmers and labourers who still say that Rahul Gandhi has not returned land which belongs to them", she said.
It was also for the first time that a tuberculosis unit has been set up in the district hospital, Irani said while continuing her tirade against the Congress leader. He visited Gujarat for the upcoming Assembly election campaign.
He also tagged a report headlined "Piyush Goyal defends Jay Shah's business dealings for second day" along with his tweet. Reciting some of the schemes launched by the Narendra Modi government, Shah said that the central government has launched 106 projects in the past three years. Rahul Gandhi said, "Their organisation is the RSS".
He further said that the conspiracy by "jija" (brother-in-law) and "beta" (son) to grab land for Samrat Cycles, under the name of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, will not be allowed.
