Union HRD minister Smriti Irani has landed in fresh trouble as her tall claims of helping an injured family on the Yamuna Express way have been dismissed by the members of the family. “We sought help with folded hands but she did not.. She left and did not stop in spite of repeated requests” the daughter and son of the doctor- Dr Ramesh Nagar, who was killed in the accident told media today. “She never bothered to listen and stop” Sandili and Abhishek said.
Smritii and other BJP leaders were returning to Delhi from Vrindavan after attending a meeting organized by BJP youth wing.
The statements by the two survivors of the tragedy contradict Irani’s claims made through a series of tweets of helping the victims.
The Human Resource Development ministry spokesperson has claimed that Irani directed senior police officials in Mathura to help the accident victims.
“Tried to help the injured who were lying on the road for quiet sometime and ensured they reach a hospital. Pray for their safety,” Irani had tweeted late on Saturday night.
