Union minister Smriti Irani on Saturday did what Congress President Rahul Gandhi did not do in the past one-and-a-half decade. Irani announced on Saturday that she will construct her own house in Amethi and has already identified a plot in Gauriganj.

She said that Amethi would now be her permanent home and she would be accessible to the people.

Rahul Gandhi had been representing Amethi in the Lok Sabha from 2004 to 2019 and his mother Sonia Gandhi had won the seat in 1999. The Gandhi family, however, never found a permanent abode in Amethi and chose to stay in guest houses during their visits.

Smriti Irani’s decision to build a house in her constituency is a clear indication that she intends to continue her relationship with Amethi in the coming years.

The minister also announced a slew of projects for her constituency on Saturday.

The meeting took place behind closed doors with only the five permanent members and the 10 non-permanent members attending it.

The 10 non-permanent members who are elected for a two-year term by the UN General Assembly are Belgium, Cote d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Germany, Indonesia, Kuwait, Peru, Poland and South Africa.
