Former Pakistani minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has been posting tweets in support of Rahul. On May 3, Hussain tagged Smriti Irani in his post that read: "Hope Amethi will defeat this hate monger @smritiirani".

Taking a dig at Fawad Hussain, Smriti Irani said that they were not being able to handle Pakistan but were worrying about Amethi.

"Till now I used to contest against Congress leader only, but now a Pakistani leader has said that Smriti Irani should be defeated. 'Tumse Pakistan na sambhalta, tum Amethi ki chinta karte ho'. If my voice reaches the leader of Pakistan, I want to say, this is the Amethi where PM Modi has built the factory of the AK 203 rifle, that rifle used to kill Pakistani terrorists on borders... 'Chunaav chal raha hai desh me, samarthan mil raha aapko (Rahul Gandhi) videsh me'," said Smriti Irani as quoted by news agency ANI.
