AMETHI: Taking a dig at the family feud in the ruling Samajwadi Party, Union Minister Smriti Irani today said the system in Uttar Pradesh has derailed due to the infighting between the two.

"Chacha-bhatije ki ladai me state me sab kuchh disturb ho gaya hai" (following the infighting between uncle (Shivpal Yadav) and nephew (Akhilesh Yadav), system in UP has been derailed). It is not good," she said.

Irani, Minister of Textiles, was addressing a public meeting after inaugurating a medical camp during her one day visit here.

She targeted Congress vice president Rahul for maintaining silence over the malpractices of the state government for last four and half years.

"Notably, Rahul Gandhi, in some of his meetings in the state repeatedly said 'pahle cycle ka pahiya puncture tha magar ab pura tyre hi fat gaya hai' (earlier, the tyre of the cycle was puncture, but now it has burst)," Irani said.

Earlier, she paid obeisance at the historical temple of Ahorwa Bhavani under Tiloi assembly and addressed a meeting in Haliyapur under Jagdishpur assembly.

This was her first visit to Amethi after the cabinet reshuffle where she was scraped off the Human Resource and Development Ministry.
