In response to the Congress’ allegations of failures in the WCD Ministry, Smriti Irani took to social media to defend the government’s record.

She emphasized the increase in funding for women and girls under the Modi regime and the implementation of various welfare programs for Anganwadi workers.

She praised the entrepreneurial spirit of women beneficiaries of MUDRA and Stand-Up India loans, attributing their success to the government’s policies.

Smriti Irani concluded by asserting that the BJP government values women as the drivers of India’s progress and is committed to their empowerment. She dismissed Jairam Ramesh’s allegations of failures in the WCD Ministry as baseless and politically motivated, emphasizing the government’s unwavering dedication to women’s welfare.
