During the inauguration of the Central University Campus in Bathinda, Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal made remarks on the similarities between Smriti Irani and Harsimrat Badal. He compared the two as both being cabinet Ministers and having similar names, but things became comical after he requested a gift from Smriti Irani.
Smriti Irani mockingly stated, “I am like your daughter, where i’m from, the daughter never gives anything to her father but instead takes stuff back.”
After the comment by Smriti Irani, people in the crowd laughed over the comments after she continuously asked CM Badal for gifts. The Punjab CM Badal was hoping Smriti Irani would give Punjab a package but unfortunately she came to dance and laugh.
