NEW DELHI: With a year left before her term expires, Textile Minister Smriti Irani has curiously made some tweets expressing gratitude to the people of Gujarat, the state she represents in Rajya Sabha.

Irani, who was recently shifted from the high-profile HRD portfolio, said that in the last five years as an MP, she has been "fortunate" to have got immense support from BJP leaders and people across the country.

The minister, who was elected five years ago, started a series of tweets but gave no indication what prompted her to take to the micro-blogging site on her tenure in the Rajya Sabha.
