FINANCE MINISTER OF INDIA: EVERYTHING TO KNOW ABOUT NIRMALA SITHARAMAN
Gone are the days when were women were hunkered down in the face of gender bias. The 17th Lok Sabha elections have been trailblazing in every aspect. The new cabinet saw the appointment of Nirmala Sitharaman as the new finance Minister. The country ever since its independence has only witnessed once, a lady at the helm of such a prestigious post.
Nirmala Sitharaman has been the incumbent leader for defence and corporate affairs since. Her prodigious designations are a feat no less than anything else as the lady had joined BJP only in 2006. Her leadership profile has been nothing short of exemplary.
Prior to Nirmala Sitharaman it was only Indira Gandhi who had helmed the offices of Defence and Finance. What needs a standalone mention is the fact that Nirmala Sitharaman has been entrusted to lead India’s 2.9 trillion dollar economy, is a testimony to her calibre and mettle. She is a member of Rajya Sabha and has also served as the National spokesperson for the BJP. The Emeritus leader of the post was Arun Jaitley who has excused himself of any cabinet responsibilities owing to his ailing health.
An overview of the Sitharaman’s work profile would include garnering risk capital from the rest of the world by turning the country’s administration more pro active and zealous towards this task. The GDP numbers are also in a dire need of being salvaged. Apart from that, a throbbing influence and threat from China also needs to be curtailed and addressed.
