Two days after HRD minister Smriti Irani tweeted about helping victims of a car accident in which she escaped unhurt, the family of Dr Ramesh Nagar, who died in the mishap, have contradicted her statement and said he did not receive any help from her.
The HRD ministry has denied the charge. According to ANI, the victim’s daughter “begged” the minister for help, but she left without doing anything.
The accident occurred at 103 milestone on the Yamuna Expressway on Saturday when the minister was returning after addressing the last session of the inaugural day of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) national convention in Vrindavan. A car from the HRD minister’s motorcade reportedly hit Dr Nagar’s bike during a highway pileup caused by heavy rain. The victim’s son, Abhishek, also said on Monday that despite her sister asking for help, the HRD minister did not stop. “My sister literally pleaded with folded hands to Smriti Irani for help, but she did not stop.”
