New Delhi: It was a narrow escape for union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani after her car met with an accident on the Yamuna Expressway late on Saturday.

The minister, informing about the accident in a series of tweets, said she was fine.

“For all enquiring re my accident – I’m fine. Thank you for the concern and wishes,” she said.

The accident occurred after her convoy was caught up in a car pile-up following an accident on the expressway.

“There was a pile up of vehicles due to an accident on the expressway. Unfortunately the police vehicle before mine and my car also crashed,” she added.

According to media reports, Irani, along with other Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, was returning to Delhi from a meeting of the party’s youth wing in Uttar Pradesh’s Vrindavan town.

The minister said she also helped those stranded on the expressway after the accident.

“Tried to help the injured who were lying on the road for quiet sometime and ensured they reach a hospital. Pray for their safety,” she said.
