While talking to media after taking charge as textiles minister, she said, "It is PM Modi's dream to boost the textile industry. I look forward to working for it."

When she was asked, whether she would be BJP's face in the upcoming UP assembly polls, she sarcastically said, "Kuch to log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna."

She had been one of the favorite ministers for media because of the various controversies that surrounded her as the HRD minister.

She tried to pin point the media for the same and said, "Yeh is baat ka sanket hai ki mai chahe kisi bhi segment mein jaaun, aapka (media) aur mera saath barkarar rahega........You (to media) all have come here in Textiles Ministry in such huge numbers probably for the first time."
