HRD minister says, I am a hard nut to crack

Smriti Irani, HRD Minister, Human Resource Development Minister,
New Delhi : "I am a hard nut to crack," says Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani who also asserts that she is "too fat" to be cut to size. The 39-year-old minister, who is in the eye of many a controversy including being accused of saffronising education, dismisses suggestions that she was getting 'isolated' and that her Ministry reports to RSS.

"If you notice all the ariticles, a few cut and copy paste job. If you look at the articles, issues are more personal which makes me believe that politically when it comes to education...I am a hard nut to crack," she said in an interview. She was asked about views that she was not a political heavyweight and a women activist saying she would not trust her with jam and pickle ministry.

Irani said it was quite telling that from being a political non-entity, she was now someone that everybody was talking about. "That says a lot. May be because the status quo is being challenged. I am of the opinion that the education sector has become a matter of political friction. In the last ten months there is a political consensus emerging. That rattles a lot of people," she said.

Asked if she was feeling victimised, the minister said, "I have never cried martyr. I have never played the victim card and I wont do it today as well." When told if she was being isolated from the party, she said "I don't think so".

Asked about her exclusion from the BJP national executive, Irani said, "I am not a decision maker. I am a party worker. My responsibility to the position I hold is to ensure that within the constitutional framework I fulfill my obligations".

"Are you being cut to size," she was asked. "I don't think so. I am too fat for that," she replied.
