In a post on twitter, the HRD minister gave vent to her anger over the report, saying "I recognise your source-based agenda and have made public my contempt for it." The reporter had claimed that Irani had recommended over 5,000 requests for admission to the Central government-run
Kendriya Vidyalaya chain of schools, a more than four-fold jump from quota levels of her predecessors.
In another tweet, the minister said, "All admissions are recorded as per requests from MPs across parties plus Bpl (below poverty line) families. Your source based lie as usual ignores facts," she said referring to the report.
The reporter responded to Irani saying that with utmost respect to her as a minister, she had been requesting for the ministry's view and version since Friday, but none had come. Irani was quick to post her rejoinder. "2 line humari aur baaki ka version aapka. And by the way respect aap na bhi kare to koi farak nai padta." (Two lines by us and the rest of version, all yours. And by the way, even if you don't respect, it does not make a difference.)
