Again. Your understanding of both the Indian legislative system and the current scenario amuses me. 
Smriti Irani is a minister because she is a Member of the Rajya Sabha. Aka Member of Parliament.

In the current case, when Nikita never renewed her membership on time, she ceases to be a member of the chapter and thus is ineligible to hold the post of an EC member.
