The UP Aam Aadmi Party posted a misogynistic tweet attacking the Union Minister Smriti Irani.
Through its official Twitter account, the Uttar Pradesh Aam Aadmi Party insinuated that Smriti Irani has an illicit relationship with PM Modi. Her detractors have often used this remark while making sexist attacks against her.
UP AAP referred to PM as Smriti Irani’s hero
In the tweet in Hindi, the UP AAP referred to PM as Smriti Irani’s hero, referring to a popular song from a Hindi movie ‘Main Tera Hero.’ The distasteful tweet by the Aam Aadmi Party was in response to a tweet uploaded by the BJP leader. In her tweet, Smriti Irani had shared a report published on ‘Jagran’ to assert that the states were cautioned by the Centre about the subsequent waves of the coronavirus outbreak in the month of January itself.
Centre alert the states about the threat of virus
“The states were being cautioned by the Central Government since January to keep the pace of the ongoing war against Covid fast and in view of the increasing number of cases in the country. Along with the advice of expanding the testing, the Central Government had continuously alerted the states about the threat posed by the virus from time to time,” she tweeted.
However, her tweet highlighting the abject failure of the state governments to take the alarm raised by the Centre seriously did not sit well with the Uttar Pradesh unit of the Aam Aadmi Party, which resorted to making a disparaging remark against her. BJP leader Smriti Irani has often been attacked by her critics with such disgraceful innuendos.
