Last night, HRD Minister Smriti Irani suddenly shot into political stardom for her fiery speech defending the Modi government against accusations of involvement in the Rohit Vermula murder and the JNU crackdown.
However, only one person noticed how she might have taken undue advantage of her position as HRD minister by doing what Ministers have been doing for decades – small favours for their own crony coterie.
She also read out a statement that she claims was posted in JNU on October 2014 by SC, ST, OBC and minority students of JNU.
“Durga Puja is the most controversial racial festival where a fair-skinned beautiful Goddess Durga is depicted brutally killing a dark-skinned native called Mahishasur. Mahishasur, a brave self-respecting leader tricked into marriage by Aryans. They hired a sex worker called Durga who enticed Mahishasur into marriage and killed him after 9 nights of honeymooning during sleep.”
