Smriti Z Iraani appointed as BJP youth wing VP

MUMBAI: Here's the latest on Bharatiya Janta Party's newest 'glam' entrant - television's favourite bahu and anchor Smriti Z Iraani. The lady's performance during the assembly election campaign by the BJP last month has met with approval from the party's mandarins. Her appointment as as the vice-president of the Maharashtra unit of the Yuva Morcha - the youth wing - was announced yesterday with the tenure being three years.

Iraani had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party as party worker late last year. Speaking to Iraani explained, "Ever since I joined the party, I had a dream of motivating the youth of our country. I strongly feel that the problems of this country can be solved only through the young generation."

"My task will comprise of inspiring the young force of BJP and assigning them tasks at basic level," she offered. When asked to elaborate further, she offered, "You keep hearing about senior citizens being murdered. My first plan would be to encourage youth to be keep a watch on the seniors, be on a look out if they need help. Next would be to establish a support system for the girls, so that they know where to turn to in times of need."

Iraani said that this post was offered to her by the delegates of the party and the process was fairly simple as it is a position within the party.

When asked about her political ambitions, she said, "I definitely see myself in active politics for a long time. "I feel we all must do something for our country in whatever way we can. If I have got an opportunity, then why not?

She added: "The BJP is a wonderful party to be in. Despite good results in the assembly election, we are still working. It's not that we work to garner media spotlight when only the elections draw near. My new appointment is a case in point. "

When queried if she would be able to continue her acting career she offered that she has an understanding with the production houses she is working with. "They know that I am a hard core professional and I won't neglect my duties," she said.
