December 2004

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Smriti ‘Tulsi’ Irani has threatened to fast unto death demanding the resignation of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi

Tulsi to go on fast unto death

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Tulsi-to-go-on-fast-unto-death/articleshow/956389.cms



Smriti Irani slams Modi, asks him to resign

I expected that he (Modi) would take a high moral ground and say fine, I step down. It is high time that Gujarat and Vajpayee got their pride and glory back which they genuinely deserved…to prove once and for all that we are a secular party which thinks in the national interest, any step taken in that direction should be welcomed,” she said.

http://www.gujaratfiles.net/news/smriti_irani_slams_modi_asks_him_resign.html


Smriti Irani’s threat to ‘fast unto death’ till Narendra Modi took to sackcloth and ashes would have raised twitters of derision.
