New Delhi, April 12: A day after Smriti Irani filed her nomination from Amethi Lok Sabha constituency declaring that she did not complete her graduation, Congress’ spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi on Friday took a jibe at Irani’s famous television show mocking the BJP minister for her changing educational qualifications.
In a video released by news agency ANI, the Congress leader in a press conference hummed the title track of Irani’s most famous show ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ while changing the lyrics to mock the former HRD minister.
Chaturvedi is heard saying, “A new serial is going to come, ‘Kyunki Mantri Bhi Kabhi Graduate Thi’; it’s opening line will be ‘Qualifications ke bhi roop badalte hain, naye-naye sanche mein dhalte hain, ek degree aati hai, ek degree jaati hai, bante affidavit naye hain. ”
Smriti Irani filed her nomination papers on Thursday in which she stated that she completed her senior secondary school in 1993 but did not complete graduation as she left it in 1994.
For 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Irani is contesting from the Amethi Lok Sabha seat on BJP’s ticket, pitting herself against Congress president Rahul Gandhi who has won thrice from the parliamentary constituency regarded as a Gandhi family pocket borough.
