Union Minister and BJP leader Smriti Irani on Wednesday accused Priyanka Gandhi Vadra of “insulting” Lal Bahadur Shastri as a purported video showed the Congress leader garlanding a bust of the former prime minister during her tour in Uttar Pradesh with the garland she had worn.

Irani wrote a limerick in a Hindi dialect to take a dig at Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

“In her “arrogance”, she chose a used garland, clapped, waved her hands and left after insulting Shastri,” Irani tweeted, tagging the video.

The BJP leader also took a dig at the Congress over a woman’s accusation that its workers behaved inappropriately with her.

“It shows the real values of Congress,” Irani alleged.

Wrapping up her three-day tour of Uttar Pradesh in Prime minister Narendra Modi’s constituency of Varanasi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra called the coming Lok Sabha election a “new freedom struggle”.

The Congress leader embarked on her river campaign on Monday from Prayagraj’s Sangam. She covered the 140-km stretch between Prayagraj to Varanasi on a boat, making brief stops along the way.

Before kick-starting her unique campaign tour, Priyanka also offered prayers at the Sangam and the Bade Hanuman temple in Prayagraj, the historic city known for its close association with the Nehru-Gandhi family.
