It was a matter of happiness that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is counting the number of days I have visited Amethi, said union minister Smriti Irani here on Sunday.
“Probably she is counting mine because she is unable to tell the public where the missing MP was for 15 years. I request her to provide that information too,” Smriti said. She also questioned the Congress’ method of showing love for the nation.
“Yasin Malik is charged with the murder of Air Force officials. Yet the statement given by PC Chacko yesterday supporting him should be condemned either by Priyanka or Rahul Gandhi. I want to ask Priyanka Vadra are these your ways of showing nationalism,” she said.
Congress spokesperson PC Chacko on Saturday told reporters in New Delhi that “If Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused, can contest election, and the way Delhi is asking him (Yasin Malik) at gunpoint to surrender, anyone with self-respect will react the way Yasin Malik did.”
