Smriti Irani, MP from Amethi, took her victory to Instagram and posted the Game of Thrones quote “The North Remembers”. She won the Lok Sabha election with massive margin of 55,000 votes. Her battle with Rahul Gandhi is now the most talked political story of the country.
If you have watched the Game of Thrones then you must be very familiar with the phrase “The North Remembers”. This phrase is often used among Northers in the Game of Thrones. ‘The North Remembers’ is also the name of first episode in second season of the Game of Thrones. The phrase means that they don’t forget the past events easily, especially betrayals.
She said in an interview “We were not concentrating on an individual but the concept of somebody given the responsibility but not fulfilling it. It has been a consistent effort since the past five years for us. Got the first signs of change in 2014 itself. My organization persisted with efforts in the constituency and it bore fruits.”
As per the Reports, the actor turned politician has campaigned interacting with the locals since months whereas Rahul Gandhi spent most of his time touring the country to fulfill his national duties.
The election fever got Rahul Gandhi so excited and he admitted his win before the count of reaming 3 lakh votes. The excitement unfortunately did not last so long as he received a shock of defeat at Amethi. He was severing Amethi since 2004 and could not register his win this time around.
