Smriti Irani: Amethi MP Smriti Irani buys land for house in her constituency | Lucknow News – Times of India

LUCKNOW: Union minister and Amethi MP Smriti Irani will soon have a permanent address in her Lok Sabha constituency. She has bought around 15,000 square feet land in Medan Mawai area of Gauriganj in Amethi to build a house.
Irani’s spokesperson in Amethi Govind Chauhan told TOI that the minister has fulfilled the promise she had made to the people in the run-up to 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Irani had told people she would get a house constructed in Amethi if she won from the constituency. Irani, who had defeated Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in his pocket borough by over 55,000 votes, stays in a rented accommodation whenever she visits Amethi.
She was in Amethi on Monday to get the registry done for the land, said Chauhan.
Without taking names, Irani had on Monday told reporters that history was witness to the fact that no Amethi MP ever built a house and stayed here, in an apparent swipe at Rahul Gandhi. “The people of Amethi always wondered if their MP would ever reside here after building a house,” Irani said, adding that she would invite all the people from her constituency during the bhoomi poojan of her house.
The minister said she has fulfilled her promise of setting up a medical college, an army school and a bypass road for Amethi.
