Pradhanmantri: Indira Gandhi’s journey from ‘Gungi Gudiya’ to ‘Durga’

News Nation brings a special show ‘Pradhanmantri’ highlighting the saga of Indian legends who sailed India through the massive barriers. From Jawahar Lal Nehru to Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the show narrates the leadership quality of stalwarts who scripted India success by their visionary moves. In today’s episode, we discussed the tallest women politician of India- Indira Gandhi’s history. She held the reins of India in every difficult time. India felt the jolt by losing two stalwarts- Jawahar Lal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri in span of 2 years. Indira had got a crown of thorns as the nation was suffering from severe issues like- national security, starvation and other. At the age of 48, she became first woman Prime Minister of India in 1966. Congress syndicate-led by K Kamaraj supported Gandhi overlooking greats like Gulzarilal Nanda and Moraji Desai.
