New Delhi: With a year left before her term expires, Textile Minister Smriti Irani has curiously made some tweets expressing gratitude to the people of Gujarat, the state she represents in Rajya Sabha.

Irani, who was recently shifted from the high-profile HRD portfolio, said that in the last five years as an MP, she has been "fortunate" to have got immense support from BJP leaders and people across the country.

The minister, who was elected five years ago, started a series of tweets but gave no indication what prompted her to take to the micro-blogging site on her tenure in the Rajya Sabha.

"On August 19, 2011 I got the opportunity to serve the nation in my capacity as Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament from the Gujarat state.

"It has been my privilege to have been able to reach out to the people of Anand & resolve their problems in whatever capacity I could," Irani wrote.

In the tweets, Irani shared snapshots of the welfare and civic work undertaken by her in Anand district during her tenure. "Providing water and conserving the same along with ensuring clean surroundings has been the top priority in Anand," she tweeted. Irani had unsuccessfully fought against Rahul Gandhi from Amethi in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
