Irani said that she was confident of contesting from Amethi. "This democracy is not a legacy of any family, am here to fight the Congress, not its B-team," she said while dismissing AAP.
Smriti Irani is likely to have a road show before filing her nomination. Many leaders of BJP are expected to be present during her nomination process.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>On my way to file my nomination for Amethi, with the blessings of Durga Ma and enthusisatic support from the constituency residents.</p>— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) <a href="https://twitter.com/smritiirani/statuses/456305620350562305">April 16, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
