But, on Monday, Sept 7, both ministers stunned the nation as they grooved to some Punjabi beats!
HRD minister Smriti Irani and Food processing minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal showcased their dancing skills during a function at Dasmesh Girls' College of Education in Bathinda.
Both of them could not resist to the foot-tapping giddha (a traditional folk dance of Punjabi women) and danced to the hilt.
The audience in the college auditorium enjoyed the dance of the ministers. Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal was also present at the event.
