Union Minister Smriti Irani and Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi exchanged nasty verbal blows on Monday morning. During the conversation, Irani attacked Rahul Gandhi by saying ‘losing Assam is his forte’. The chain of Tweets lead to an ugly Twitter spat.
The conversation began with Ms Chaturvedi reacting to a tweet targeting her.
Irani took no time to join the conversation, tweeting that she does not have Z category security. It started a back-and-forth between the two women that quickly turned acrimonious.
@priyankac19 I don't have Z security Madam.— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) May 23, 2016
Madam I don't know the internal workings of Home Ministry, i go as per newspaper reports. I presume no security at all then @smritiirani ?— Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) May 23, 2016
@priyankac19 why are you so interested in my security? Planning anything?— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) May 23, 2016
Not worth my time , so don't worry on that front @smritiirani , you must concentrate on creating another campus ruckus.— Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) May 23, 2016

After firing salvos at each other, the two women even wished 'good day' to each other.
