Indira Gandhi most powerful PM, says Prabhu
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Tuesday praised former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi as the “most powerful PM of the country” at a Women’s Day celebration here. “US does not have a woman President yet. But we have woman as President, Lok Sabha Speaker and Prime Minister. Indira Gandhi was the most powerful PM in the country,” Prabhu said.
He said there are lots of women in and around the world who have set a high benchmark and efficiency parameters for men to follow and have set a new work culture in the country.
“There are so many women employees in Railways, who are doing well. Generally, women do it better wherever they are,” Prabhu said.
Railways have about one lakh women employees.
He asked women in railways to set new benchmarks so it becomes an example for men to follow.
