Smriti Irani challenges Rahul to debate with BJP leaders

The 2.0 (Rahul Gandhi) should come on a platform. Pick anybody from the BJP, any stage, anywhere in the country (for the debate). Then see how much strength that 2.0 has, she said

Kolkata: Union Minister Smriti Irani today said people will discover Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s “true mettle” if he engages in a debate with any BJP leader.

The Minister for Information and Broadcasting, while speaking at an interactive session here, was asked if growing public opinion in favour of Gandhi worried the BJP.

“Not at all,” she said.

“I think the true mettle of the man will be discovered by the people if he ever gets on to a debating platform. The 2.0 (Rahul Gandhi) should come on a platform. Pick anybody from the BJP, any stage, anywhere in the country (for the debate). Then see how much strength that 2.0 has,” she said.

Irani said she was herself willing to take Gandhi on in a debate.

“I don’t mind debating him but he will not come,” the minister said.
