The Union Minister and the firebrand leader of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Smriti Irani, on Saturday, Jul 23, came down heavily on the Congress party for their serious allegations against her daughter for allegedly owning an illegal bar in Goa. Irani termed the allegations by Congress party leader, Pawan Khera, against her daughter, Zoish Irani, as “character assassination” of her daughter and it is because her mother audaciously unearths the corruption by the Congress’ “Gandhis”.
“Her (Zoish Irani) character was publicly mutilated by the Congress party spokespersons and they claim that the mutilation stemmed from a show-cause notice. I want to ask that Congressperson, where is my daughter’s name in the papers that he flashed?” Irani asked in her angry style in the press conference on Saturday. “Jairam Ramesh said, he is taking a position based on RTI application. Where did it mention my daughter’s name? The allegation that my daughter runs an illegal bar is malicious, with the intent not only to assassinate her character, but also to politically malign me.” added Irani in the press conference.

The Union Minister stated that the reason for this attack on her daughter is the former’s audacity to uncover the corruption by the Congress’ “Gandhis”. “It is done at the direction of the Congress leadership, namely the Gandhi family. Because I had the audacity to hold a press conference and question Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on the Rs 5,000 crore loot of the Indian treasury” alleged Irani in her press conference on Saturday. The Union Minister hinted at legal course of action against the two congressmen who made these defamatory allegations against her daughter.
Earlier today, the staunch Congress party spokesperson, Pawan Khera, stoke controversy by dragging Irani’s daughter, Zoish, in an allegedly corruption case in Goa where Zoish Irani allegedly runs a restaurant & Bar called Silly Souls Restaurant & Bar which Khera called an illegal one as it runs on a ‘fake license’. Khera made some shocking revelations that the license for the restaurant & bar is in the name of a deceased man and it is illegal to hold two licenses on one bar as per Goa rules.
“The license by Smriti Irani’s daughter is in the name of a person who died in May 2021, and the license was taken in June 2022 in Goa. But the person in whose name the license is, had died 13 months ago. This is illegal,” Khera stated in the press conference on Saturday. Khera didn’t stop at it but demanded sacking of the Union Minister immediately as the charges against Irani’s family is serious.
“We demand from the prime minister that Smriti Irani should be immediately sacked as a minister from the Union cabinet. You owe it to this country, to the youth of this country,”

After the press conference by the Union Minister, Pawan Khera again tweeted in response to Irani’s press conference questioning the authenticity of Irani’s contentions in today’s press conference. “Which Smriti Zubin Irani is lying? The one who on 14th April 2022 said she was proud of her daughter’s restaurant or the one who today says her daughter has nothing to do with the Silly Souls Bar & Cafe?” read the tweet by Khera.
