Textile Minister Smriti Irani have a year to go before her Rajya Sabha term ends but she rather curiously thanked the people of Gujarat, the state she represents in the Rajya Sabha on twitter! And no one knows exactly why.

Irani said she has been “fortunate” to have got immense support from BJP leaders and people across the country.

The minister, who was elected five years ago, started a series of tweets but gave no indication what prompted her to take to the micro-blogging site on her tenure in the Rajya Sabha.
"On August 19, 2011 I got the opportunity to serve the nation in my capacity as Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament from the Gujarat state.

In the tweets, Irani shared snapshots of the welfare and civic work undertaken by her in Anand district during her tenure.

"Providing water and conserving the same along with ensuring clean surroundings has been the top priority in Anand," she tweeted.

Irani had unsuccessfully fought+ against Rahul Gandhi from Amethi in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
