Election Epicentre: Decoding Smriti’s Historic Victory

It is one of the biggest victories of the 2019 elections. From spokesperson to minister to giant slayer - Smriti Irani has ended the Gandhi dynasty's dominance in Amethi by beating Rahul Gandhi by a margin of 50,000 votes. She ended the Congress' reign in the seat after 20 years. She is the face of Team Modi's 'Aspirational India' - a non-dynast defeating an entrenched political dynasty by a whopping number of votes. For months the union minister parked herself in Amethi gaining traction in the Gandhi seat. In 2017, BJP won 4 of the 5 assembly segments in Amethi slowly turning the tide and culminating in the killing stroke by Smriti Irani who clinched the seat just yesterday.
