NEW DELHI: Slamming Congress for taking a swipe at HRD Minister Smriti Irani's educational qualification, BJP today said Congress leaders should leave their "arrogance" behind after the party's defeat in the Lok Sabha polls and introspect.  

"We want to advise Congress leaders that after country's people rejected them in Lok Sabha elections, they should now leave their arrogance behind and introspect," BJP spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.      

He said the party was defeated in elections due to the "arrogance" of Congress leaders but they are still not ready to leave their arrogance.     

"Congress leaders should now stop using abusive words against BJP leaders. Congress should respect the mandate of the people," he said.     

Another BJP leader Santosh Gangwar said he wants to ask Congress how educated was its president Sonia Gandhi.          

"I want to ask Congress how educated is Sonia Gandhi," Gangwar said.        

Congress leader Ajay Maken yesterday took a jibe at Irani's educational qualification.        

"What a Cabinet of Modi? HRD Minister (looking after education) Smriti Irani is not even a graduate! Look at her affidavit at ECI site pg 11," he had tweeted yesterday.
