In an interview, Smriti Irani said Priyanka Gandhi took her husband Robert Vadra's name less but her name more. "She (Priyanka Gandhi Vadra) did not know my name 5 years back. But now, she keeps taking my name all the time. Now a days, she takes her husband's name less and my name more." commented Smriti.
When Sharad Yadav commented on Smriti she took it seriously and BJP fired on him for talking to a lady in such a rude manner. But now, despite being a lady herself, Smriti taking a dig at Priyanka made the people fume on Smriti.
