Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani had gone to Delhi’s Rajiv Chowk locality on Tuesday when according to a report her driver got into an argument with the parking attendant of E Block. Later the BJP leader left the area without paying any parking fee.
According to a report, the duo exchanged blows over the lifting of a barrier that was lying there. It is said that the parking attendant also misbehaved with Smriti Irani and her driver. Another report in Zee News alleges that the Union Minister had refused to pay the parking fee. When the parking attendant demanded it, the duo got into a war of words.
It is believed that Smriti Irani had gone to Cannought place area for shopping purpose. But it is not clear if she were using her official vehicle or personal vehicle.
Delhi police reached the spot soon after getting the information of the rift. Parking official was questioned by the police and later after he admitted to his mistake, he was left with warnings.
Further Delhi police claimed that no complaint has been registered by the Union Minister so far against the parking attendant.
