In a veiled attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Nyay Yatra, Union Minister Smriti Irani said that those who are known for injustice are pretending to provide justice these days.
“Those who are known for injustice are pretending to provide justice these days (Jo anyay ke liye jane jate hai suna hai aaj kal vo nyay ka dhong kar rahe hai),” Smriti Irani told reporters on December 28.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju also said that the Wayanad MP’s Bharat Nyay Yatra was not bothersome because the people of India stand firmly behind Narendra Modi and BJP.
