Smriti challenges Rahul for Open Debate on Education

New Delhi, May 30: Union HRD minister Smriti Irani openly challenged Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi to debate on education in regard to IIT-Madras ban on a student organisation.

SmritiIrani took to Twitter and wrote:

"@OfficeofRG next time fight your battles yourself don't hide yourself behind NSUI. And by the way, I will be returning to Amethi soon. See you there."

In a series of tweets, Irani accused Rahul of sending men to her house in an attempt to scare her. Scores of NSUI workers yesterday protested outside Iraniís official residence in Delhi over derecognition of an IIT Madras students group.

The protestors from Congress' student's wing raised anti-government slogans and accused the HRD Ministry of being behind the action.
