Congress alleges Union Minister Smriti Irani’s daughter running ‘illegal’ bar in Goa, demands PM to remove the minister

“The license of Bar is in the name of a person who passed in May 2021, and the license is made in this year. This is illegal,” said a Congress spokesperson.


Congress party on Saturday alleged Union minister Smriti Irani with allegations that a Goa restaurant run by the minister’s daughter Zoish has been given a notice for obtaining a liquor license in the name of a dead person.

Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera told in a press conference that Irani’s daughter is allegedly owns a restaurant in Goa, in which a bar is operating on a “fake license”. The license of Bar is in the name of a person who passed in May 2021, and the license is made in this year and this is illegal.

He further alleged that the officer who showed the courage to serve the notice is being hounded and preparation for his transfer is also going on.

“While the children of your supporters are engaged in LuLu Mall-Hanuman Chalisa- Namaz game. Your children are either studying outside India. Which is a very good thing, they should do. Or are indulging in illegal activities under your patronage”. Pawan Khera said.

He further claimed that the restaurant has two bar licenses. Which no restaurant in Goa has, and it has bar licenses without having a legal license to regulate as a restaurant.

“We want to ask the minister whether she had no knowledge about all these things. We have also come to know that steps are being taken to transfer the official. Is it happening without the minister’s intervention?”. Pawan Khera questioned.

Congress further asked Prime Minister Marendra Modi to sack Smriti Irani as the Union Minister.

Meanwhile, Kirat Nagra, the lawyer of Irani’s daughter said, “It is unfortunate that they have resorted to spreading false propaganda only to sensationalize a non issue. Without ascertaining true facts and with a predetermined objective of defaming our client. For solely being the daughter of a political leader.”
