We all know that NDA and UPA have announced their presidential candidates, and the ruling party is trying hard to prove that their candidate, Ram Nath Kovind, is better than UPA’s. If you all recall, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj recently posted a video on Twitter, criticising the then Lok Sabha Speaker and now UPA’s presidential candidate Meira Kumar.
She claimed that she was NOT treated well by Kumar back then and was interrupted around 60 times in her 6-minute speech during a 2013 Lok Sabha session.

Congress was quick enough to realise what the ruling party was trying to do, and they countered Swaraj with another old video, in which she was seen praising Meira Kumar.
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor took to Facebook to share an old video from 2014 where Swaraj is all praises for Meira Kumar. She said –
‘I am smitten by you… I have said myself that your behaviour, and the lack of anger in your nature, has been your biggest contribution in running the House.’
Tharoor captioned the video –
‘Sushmaji taking you down memory lane – Watch Sushma Swaraj praise Lok Sabha Speaker Smt #MeiraKumar in her farewell speech.’
Uum, what do you have to say to this, Ms Swaraj?
