Union Minister Smt Smriti Irani created history by defeating Rahul Gandhi and conquering the Congress bastion of nearly four decades and made her victory the biggest upset of modern day Indian politics.
The sleepy and dusty town of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh came alive with BJP supporters coming out on the streets taking out victory marches and chanting slogans of “Jai Sri Ram” and “Modi Zindabad” throwing saffron colour in the air in celebration.
The sentiment among the supporters was that Congress president who was a Member of Parliament from Amethi since 2004, was cut off from ground reality.
Smt Irani wrote on Twitter, “Kaun kehta hai aasman mein surakh nahi ho sakta…” suggesting nothing is impossible.
She addressed party workers and supporters in the evening thanking them for the all the hard work to make her historic victory possible.
