Union HRD minister Smriti Irani who lost the recent Lok Sabha election to Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi has no plans of abandoning the constituency but she is planning to develop it as her political base.
Irani is planning to bring in developments through the Centre to maintain contact with the people of Amethi.
Daya Shankar Yadav the district unit BJP president said, “The people here are losing faith and getting disenchanted with the state of affairs and are looking ahead for change. Amethi, despite being a high profile constituency for the past so many years, has remained backward”.
Uma Shankar Pandey, Irani’s poll agent said, “Irani is working for the all round development of the constituency, be it in the field of education, roads or the minor problems related to the people of Amethi”.
She has taken an initiative to a district level railway station at Gauriganj for which she also met the Railway Minister.
