New Delhi: A face-off between Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani and All India Mahila Congress’ acting President Netta D’Souza on an IndiGo flight over rising prices of petrol and cooking gas went viral on April 10, 2022.

The incident happened on the airlines’ Delhi-Guwahati flight. Irani had come to Guwahati to chair the Zonal Conference of State Governments and Stakeholders of the North-East region.

The Congress leader filmed the face-off as she questioned Irani over the rising prices of petrol and cooking gas.

Irani is also seen recording the incident in the video posted by D’Souza.

The Congress leader posted the video on Twitter and tweeted: “Faced Modi Minister @smritiirani ji, enroute to Guwahati. When asked about Unbearable Rising Prices of LPG, she blamed Vaccines, Raashan & even the poor! Do watch the video excerpts, on how she reacted to common people’s misery!”

Irani, while walking on the aerobridge towards the terminal, is heard telling the Congress leader that 80 crore people in India are getting free food grains for the last 27 months.

Several Congress leaders retweeted D’Souza’s tweet and praised her. (PW News)
