CHANGING ROLES have marked Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani. From the lead character in an early evening TV series to a Lok Sabha competitor who wrested the Gandhi family stronghold of Amethi in the 2019 decisions, to an individual from the Cabinet where she, most as of late, directed the Prohibition of Child Marriage (Amendment) Bill, 2021, which tries to raise the legitimate period of marriage for ladies from 18 to 21 years, Irani is currently a creator as well.
Her book Lal Salaam, outlined by the killing of 76 CRPF staff in Dantewada in April 2010, is the tale of a gutsy cop and his journey for truth in the midst of a haze of clashing forms and difficulties.
Irani will be the visitor at The Indian Express e-Adda on Monday.
As five states go to the surveys one month from now, Irani will be among the star campaigners for her party. Familiar with a few dialects — Hindi, English, Gujarati, Bengali and Marathi – she has arisen as one of the BJP's most critical voices, both inside and outside Parliament.
As Women and Child Development Minister, Irani, who prior held the HRD and I&B portfolios, has presented a few milestone Bills in Parliament, the latest being the Prohibition of Child Marriage (Amendment) Bill, 2021. The service additionally revised the Juvenile Justice Act, while the hotly anticipated Trafficking in Persons (Prevention, Care and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2021, is to be presented in Parliament soon.
At the Express e-Adda, Irani will be in conversation with Anant Goenka, Executive Director, The Indian Express Group, and Vandita Mishra, National Opinion Editor, The Indian Express.
