“My name is SMRITI IRANI. I challenge you to identify my caste.” HRD minister Smriti Irani’s rousing, 48-minute speech in the Lok Sabha during the debate on the ongoing JNU row and the suicide of Rohith Vemula, went viral on social media. Others may cast doubts on her education or ability, but her performance on that day shoved the naysayers aside. PM Modi tweeted a link to her speech from his personal handle. Clearly, this lady is one to watch out for, a combative and effective speaker, and more important, a key figure in the emerging second line of BJP leaders.
