Taking a jibe at Smriti Irani, the opposition lashed out at her over the “barbaric” killing and mutilation of two Indian soldiers. Slamming Irani, Congress leader Sibal on Tuesday wondered if Union Minister Smriti Irani would now “gift bangles” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as she had wanted to send to former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after a similar killing in 2013.

This remark is an answer to Irani’s response during a terror attack on Indian soldiers in 2013, where she addressing a public meeting had offered to send bangles to Manmohan Singh who was the PM of India then.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the barbaric attack by the Pakistanis and the mutilating of the bodies of two of our soldiers,” the Congress spokesperson said.

“During the UPA regime, there was a woman MP (Smriti Irani) who said the Prime Minister should be gifted bangles. Will the same MP who is now a Minister send bangles to Prime Minister Narendra Modi? ” Sibal asked.

He said the BJP-led NDA government will have time to protect the borders “only if they have time to spare from election campaigns. What kind of a government is this that despite knowing that Pakistan will not change its ways, they invited the ISI to Pathankot,” said Sibal, referring to the Pakistani team that went to Pathankot to probe the 2016 terror attack on an Indian airbase.

“In the last 35 months, 135 soldiers have died in Jammu and Kashmir. Who is responsible for this?” he asked.

“They said demonetization will end terrorism, but terror attacks only increased after that. I remember when Hemraj was beheaded (in 2013) Sushmaji (External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj) said ‘We should get 10 heads for one’…How many heads will they get for two?” Sibal wondered.

Additionally, the national secretary of the Indian Youth Congress Radhika Khera took to twitter to slam Irani over her remarks. Radhika on Tuesday posted a screenshot of the order she placed for bangles which are directed to be delivered to Irani’s residence.
