Smriti Irani Explains What Led To Her Historic Win

With a margin of over 55,000 votes, Rahul Gandhi lost his home turf Amethi, the seat from where he was chosen as the member of Parliament since 2004, to BJP leader Smriti Irani. In 2014, too, Irani had given the Congress president a tough fight and garnered over three lakh votes in the parliamentary constituency with vote margin down to a lakh. Speaking to News18 after the victory, the union leader said her poll campaign focussed on highlighting the unfulfilled promises of the Congress in Amethi. “We were not concentrating on an individual but on the concept of somebody given the responsibility but not fulfilling it. It has been a consistent effort since the past five years for us. Got the first signs of change in 2014 itself. My organisation persisted with efforts in the constituency and it bore fruits,” Irani said.
