An old video from the show Carry On, Shekhar hosted by Shekar Suman, has gone viral on the internet and social media websites.
In the video, the host Shekar Suman asks Smriti Irani (who had then just joined the Bharatiya Janata Party), about how many states there are in India. Irani’s response is that she ‘wouldn’t know’. Shekarr Suman then goes on to ask Smriti Irani how many states are ruled by BJP, to which she doesn’t know the reply as well!
While it would have been difficult to imagine that a television actress would one day go on to become the Education Minster, it is another embarrassment for the minister, who has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the recent past.
