Smriti Irani
Ahmedabad, Sept 16: Days after Narendra Modi's elevation as BJP PM candidate for Lok Sabha elections, Smriti Irani explained reasons why women are smitten by the Gujarat Chief Minister.

Former actress Irani, who is known as Indian bahu (daughter-in-law) following her TV serial 'Saans Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi', is a BJP MP from Gujarat to the Rajya Sabha. The MP attended an event organised by Gujarat BJP's IT Cell purportedly to sensitise women professionals on the use of social media.

Speaking at the event, Irani said, "Gone are the days of Rajiv Gandhi who said, ‘Hum dekhenge, sochenge, karenge'. Modi says things are happening here (in Gujarat) and women appreciate it."

"...It's not an emotional appeal, it's logical and action oriented," added Irani while addressing the audience present at the event felicitating women at BJP's Khanpur office in Ahmedabad on Sunday, Sept 15.

Continuing her statement on Modi and women, the BJP MP said, "Women are a loyal electorate. It is a misconception that they do not make their own choices but are influence by the male members of family."

Not emotional appeal, it's logical and action oriented

"Two years ago, I had organised a gathering of about 25 women from different states to Gujarat. After touring the state, they sat across the table and Modi sought their feedback on what's right and what's not," she added.

Irani also informed that the Gujarat CM had paid attention to the queries and needs of the women. Irani believes that Modi had implemented some of the suggestions which were given to him by the group of women.

Modi has been selected as PM candidate of BJP for the general election which is expected to be held in 2014. Soon after the announcement, Modi said, "Today the BJP's national leadership has given a very big responsibility to some who has come from a very common family."

"I want to thank every small and big leader in the party and express my gratitude to them. I would like to assure them that in the 2014 elections I will not leave any stone unturned to ensure the BJP's victory in 2014," Modi said.

"I hope that they will support the BJP to help us get the country from this period," added Modi.
