7 reasons why Smriti is a 'lambi race ka ghoda'
By Sunil Rajguru
Cabinet minister Smriti Irani may well be the most hated politician in India after Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Like Modi Haters, Smriti Haters also attack 24X7 and keep their target in the news.
While misogynist attacks of any kind are frowned by our liberals and intelligentsia, they actually seem to be encouraged when it comes to Smriti.
Her rapid rise stunned many and her detractors keep saying that her fall is imminent.
While some were elated at her “demotion” from Human Resource Development Minister to
Textiles, others are not sure. However Smriti is no pushover and she is here for the long haul.
Here are some of the reasons why…
1. She has got a really huge head start in politics
Indian politics is an old person’s game. Most achieve their goals in the sixties onwards. People like former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former Deputy PM LK Advani were in the limelight till their eighties.
Smriti became HRD Minister at the age of 38 and at the age of 40 is still a minister.
She will see many ups and downs in her career and even if she is sidelined for a couple of years, all she has to do is bide her time.
