Actor Ronit Roy took to Instagram to wish Union minister Smriti Irani for her win in the Lok Sabha elections 2019 from Amethi against Congress president Rahul Gandhi. He shared a picture of the senior BJP leader and wished her on her success.
“EK NUMBER!!! Amethi mainJeet ki koti koti badhai @smritiiraniofficial Aajevan vijayi bhava (Many congratulations on your win from Amethi. May you be victorious all your life),” he captioned the picture of his former co-star from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Smriti replied to the post with a folded hands emoji.
Irani defeated the sitting MP Rahul Gandhi by a margin of 55,120 votes. In a tweet, Irani said, “Ek nayi subah Amethi ke liye, ek naya sankalp. Dhanyawad Amethi, shat shat naman. Apne vikas per vishwas jataya, kamal ka phool khilaya. Amethi ka abhaar (A new morning for Amethi, a new resolve. Thank you Amethi. You showed faith in development and for helping lotus bloom)”. The Union minister cultivated a strong voter base in the constituency with her numerous visits and using central development schemes in past five years after she lost to the Congress president in 2014.
