It was family versus family-like organisation: Smriti Irani on Amethi win

Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani who defeated Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Amethi, a Congress bastion where the latter had a hold for the last 15 years, said the competition was between a "family and an organisation", indicating the family-based rule of Congress in Amethi versus the organisation of BJP which Irani said works like a family. Irani, while thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for her victory, said she would like to dedicate her win to the BJP workers who were killed in Kerala and West Bengal. When trends emerged clear that she was winning against Rahul Gandhi, Irani also visited a temple in Amethi and offered her prayers.
