Congress Leader Invites Smriti Irani To Join Bharat Jodo Yatra
Deepak Singh, a senior in the Congress and a former MLC for Uttar Pradesh, announced on Thursday that he had written to BJP MP Smriti Irani of Amethi to invite her to participate in the state’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, which is being headed by Rahul Gandhi.
At Irani’s camp headquarters in Gauriganj on Wednesday, Mr. Singh claimed he delivered the invitation to Naresh Sharma. The former Member of Legislative Council (MLC) claimed that the senior party figures had told him to extend an invitation to everyone to participate in the Bharat Jodo Yatra. He stated,”I thought that Amethi MP Smriti Zubin Irani should be given an invitation letter before anybody else”.
When asked about the invitation, BJP district president Durgesh Tripathi stated that neither the MP for Amethi nor any other party member would be participating in the yatra.
“The BJP always works on the concept of a united India. India has never been broken, so where did this talk of uniting it come from,” he asked.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Irani defeated Amethi’s Rahul Gandhi, a former president of the Congress.On January 3, the yatra will reach Uttar Pradesh through Ghaziabad.
