Union Minister Smriti Irani challenged Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi to debate with the BJP over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "achievements".

Irani's remark came after Priyanka Gandhi said that PM Modi never spoke on pressing issues concerning the country.

"I challenge them (Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rahul Gandhi) to pick any channel, anchor, place, time, and issue to debate with the BJP. Dono bhai-behen ek taraf aur BJP ka ek pravakta ek taraf, doodh ka doodh, paani ka paani ho jaayega (On one side, there will be the brother-sister duo and on the other side, there will be a spokesperson of the BJP; everything will be clear)...From our party, Sudhanshu Trivedi is enough. They will get an answer," Irani said.

In an interview with PTI Priyanka Gandhi when asked about the issues raised by the BJP and Prime Minister Modi that the Congress will redistribute wealth if it comes to power, said, "Challenge the prime minister to raise the issue of unemployment which is the worst it has been in 45 years. I challenge the prime minister to tell us which institutions the BJP has built, I challenge the prime minister to name one scheme that he has actually started himself and is not a scheme that was started by the Congress but he has renamed."

"I challenge the prime minister to tell us how he is going to reduce prices. I challenge the PM to tell us how he is going to reduce the difficulties farmers are facing and how he is going to help them," she said.
