Union Minister Smriti Irani blasted at Congress on Saturday, saying the claim that her daughter “runs an illegal bar” is “malicious, with the purpose not just to murder her reputation but also to politically tarnish me.”

In a news conference, she stated that the claims were made “under the instruction of the Congress leadership, specifically the Gandhi family.”

“Because I had the courage to call a news conference and challenge Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi about the Rs 5,000 crore treasury scam,” she explained.

With its claims, minister accused Congress of “publicly mutilating” her daughter’s reputation.

She further added saying ” Congress party publicly maimed her reputation, claiming that the mutilation was the result of a show-cause notice. I’d want to ask the Congressman where my daughter’s name is on the documents he flashed?”

“Her character, an 18-year-old college student, was slain by Congressmen at the party headquarters. Her mother ran in Lok Sabha elections against Rahul Gandhi from Amethi in 2014 and 2019 ” she continued.

Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani has challenged Rahul Gandhi to run against her in Amethi again in 2024, saying he will lose.

Congress had convened a news conference earlier in the day, alleging that her daughter was running a “illegal bar” in a restaurant in Goa. The minister’s removal from the unity government was sought by the party.
