Amethi: Union minister Smriti Irani and Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant visited the village that was adopted by late Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday in Amethi.

They also met with the family members of Surendra Singh, the former village head of Barauli, who was shot dead last month.

Sawant, while talking to the media said, "In 2014 elections I came to Amethi as an MLA when I met Surinder Singh. And so, I wanted to come here personally to meet his family. It is very unfortunate what happened. Bhartiya Janata Party has lost a hardworking and a good party worker. The BJP party stands with his family."
