Kejriwal, Irani trade barbs on Twitter
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Union minister Smriti Irani traded barbs on Twitter on Saturday. This followed after Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter handle and appealed to woman voters asking them to discuss with men as to who could be the right choice for votes. Smriti Irani retorted on Twitter and also used a hashtag, projecting him as anti-women.
वोट डालने ज़रूर जाइये सभी महिलाओं से ख़ास अपील - जैसे आप घर की ज़िम्मेदारी उठाती हैं, वैसे ही मुल्क और दिल्ली की… https://t.co/Y7bBRUx2TW— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) 1581128507000
"Must go to vote. A special appeal to all women. As you take care of your family, there is another responsibility on your shoulder which is of the country as well as Delhi. All women must vote and also take men of their family for it. You also must discuss with men who will be the right choice (for votes)," Kejriwal tweeted minutes before the polling for electing the Delhi assembly began.
Irani retorted, "Don't you consider women so capable that they could decide themselves who to vote for?" She also used a hashtag, projecting him as anti-women.
आप क्या महिलाओं को इतना सक्षम नहीं समझते की वे स्वयं निर्धारित कर सके किसे वोट देना है ? #महिलाविरोधीकेजरीवाल https://t.co/fUnqt2gJZk— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) 1581141180000
Kejriwal soon hit back at her, saying the women of Delhi have decided who to vote for.
"And this time in Delhi, women have decided their family's choice for votes. After all they have to run their household," he added. KR KR SMN SMN
