Congress General Secretary for UP East Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday visited the ancestral home of former PM Lal Bahadur Shastri at Ramnagar. Priyanka Gandhi reached the destination by road and then she garlanded the statute ‘Shastri Ji’. Shockingly, she removed the ‘mala’ that she was already wearing in her neck and then she offered it to the former PM.
Stating it as an insult to the former Prime Minister, Smriti Irani took to Twitter to lash Priyanka by sharing the video of the incident. She wrote in Hindi.
मुंडी झुकाइएके सर झटकाइएके गुमान में बिटिया भूल गई मरजाद आपन गले की उतरन, पहनाए दीहिन शास्त्री जी के अपमान पर ताली बजाएके, हाथ हिलाइएके चल दीहलें कांग्रेस बिटिया तोहार
(English translation: Keeping her head low, the daughter in her arrogance, she crossed the limit. She removed the garland from her neck, offered it to the former PM Shastri Ji and insulted him. This is the daughter of Congress).
Watch the video for complete clarity on the incident:
मुंडी झुकाइएके सर झटकाइएके
गुमान में बिटिया भूल गई मरजाद
आपन गले की उतरन, पहनाए दीहिन
शास्त्री जी के अपमान पर ताली बजाएके, हाथ हिलाइएके
चल दीहलें कांग्रेस बिटिया तोहार pic.twitter.com/ndwT15Y8co

Uttar Pradesh Minister Siddharth Nath Singh joined the bandwagon and also took to Twitter to condemn Priyanka Gandhi’s act. His caption reads, “The Gandhi-Vadra family never respected Shastri Ji and watch this I am not only hurt but saddened to see their values. How will they run this country?”
शास्त्री जी को गांधी/वदरा परिवार ने कभी समान दिया ही नहीं लेकिन यह दृश देकर दुख ही नहीं इनके संस्कार पर भी रोना आता हैं। यह क्या देश चलायें गे https://t.co/jF1RcTWCmT
