New Delhi: Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury Tuesday hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Smriti Irani and Prime Minister Narendra saying that the two should not become “thekedars” of OBC community.
He also said, “…This has nothing to do with OBCs. Neither Modi nor Smriti Irani should become ‘thekedar’ of OBC. They want to do politics and nothing else in the name of OBC.”
He said that the people of OBC community cannot be misled so easily.
“Running away from Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi has deployed Smriti Irani today. If she says ‘no’, she’ll lose her job… Come to us with real issues… If you (PM Modi) have courage, sit before media and tell them to ask you anything…,” said Chowdhury.

Smriti Irani Slams Rahul Gandhi
Earlier in the day, Irani alleged that Rahul Gandhi has insulted the entire OBC community in a bid to aim target at PM Modi. Irani said that the former Congress chief ‘pretends today not to be a coward’.
“He (Rahul Gandhi) abused and accused PM Modi in Parliament but could not verify his own statement by authenticating it with his own signature. He is the man who apologised to the Supreme Court and pretends today not to be a coward. Rahul Gandhi has been convicted by the court, for not abusing an individual but the OBC community is known to every citizen of our country,” she said.
In 2019, Rahul Gandhi had tendered an unconditional apology to the Supreme Court for his “Chowkidar Chor Hai” jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In today’s press conference, Smriti Irani alleged that this is not the first time when Gandhi family has insulted PM Modi.

“Rahul Gandhi in a magazine interview said that Modi Ji’s strength is his image and he will destroy that image. He said that he will keep attacking PM Modi’s image until he destroys it. The Gandhi family tried to malign the image of PM Narendra Modi when they were in power but they failed miserably. Rahul Gandhi’s promise to a magazine editor to rip Modi’s image apart is a promise that shall remain unfulfilled because PM Modi’s greatest strength is the people of India,” alleged the union minister.
