NEW DELHI: All India Mahila Congress today staged a protest demonstration demanding HRD Minister Smriti Irani's resignation accusing her of having "failed to help" the family of Dr Ramesh Nagar who died in an accident on Yamuna Expressway last week.

"We protested the way HRD Minister behaved with the Nagar family after the road accident on Yamuna Expressway last week and demanded her resignation," said Shobha Oza, president of All India Mahila Congress.

On 5 March, Irani escaped with minor injuries when her vehicle and her escort vehicle had rammed into another vehicle that had allegedly hit a motorcycle killing Ramesh Nagar and injuring his daughter Sandali and nephew Pankaj.

"Irani should be removed from the government as she failed to help the Nagar family and also because her claim of helping the family after the accident has now been contradicted by daughter of the deceased," Oza said.

The Mahila Congress also demanded a fair inquiry into the accident taking cognizance of allegations against the HRD minister and punish the guilty policemen who did not register FIR as per complaint of Nagar's daughter, Oza added.

The Congress protestors planned to take out a march to the Prime Minister's residence but were stopped at a police barricade near Ashoka Hotel.
