Contact US: Smriti Irani’s swipe at Rahul over Congress’s ‘missing’ tweet

New Delhi: Union minister and BJP leader Smriti Irani on Wednesday took a jibe at Congress and Rahul Gandhi for his party’s tweet that declared her as "missing".

Reacting sharply to the tweet, Irani said that she was in Amethi and anyone looking for the former MP of the area could ‘contact US’.

"O divine political creature, I have just left Sirsira village, Vidhan Sabha Salon, Lok Sabha Amethi towards Dhuranpur. If looking for former MP please contact US," read a rough translation of the Hindi tweet from the minister, who had wrested the Gandhi family stronghold from Rahul Gandhi in 2019.

Gandhi, who had lost in Amethi, won Kerala's Wayanad. However, he lost the constituency earlier this year after being sentenced to two years in jail following conviction in a defamation case.

The Congress on Wednesday shared on Twitter a ‘missing’ poster of Irani who is the Union Women and Child Development Minister.

The party shared a tweet with a picture of Irani and Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi saying ‘one hides the tweets’ and the other runs away from the questions regarding the women wrestlers.

Meanwhile, Gandhi is currently on a six-day visit to the US. His sharp criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi there has upset the BJP camp.

At a gathering in San Francisco, Mr Gandhi had said that PM Modi would "explain to God how the universe works and God will get confused about what have I created".

The Prime Minister, he alleged, belongs to the group of people who think they can "explain history to historians, science to scientists and warfare to the army". At the core of it is "mediocrity", Gandhi had added, "they're not ready to listen”.

Gandhi while speaking at the event in Santa Clara in California, on Tuesday said that before starting the Bharat Jodo Yatra, he realised that the normal tools that have historically been used in politics were no longer working.

Union minister Anurag Thakur reacted sharply accusing Gandhi of “insulting India” and saying that the Congress leader "could not digest" the praise and appreciation the Prime Minister received during his recent foreign visits.

"PM Modi met almost 24 PMs and Presidents of the world and held over 50 meetings during his foreign visit recently. Several world leaders say Modi is the most popular leader. When the Australian PM said 'PM Modi is the Boss', Rahul Gandhi could not digest this," added Thakur.
