Purandreswari rules out active part in AP politics
Hyderabad, Apr 8 (UNI) Union Minister of State for Human Resources Development and Congress leader D Purandreswari today made it clear that she was not interested in playing an active part in Andhra Pradesh politics at present.
Talking to newspersons here, the Congress leader, daughter of actor-turned politician and late Chief Minister N T Rama Rao said, ''I have a lot to do at the central level.'' ''Let me see after that'', she said in reply to a question.
Ms Purandreswari, who earlier launched the Young FICCI Ladies Organisation(YFLO) Hyderabad chapter, said she would facilitate tie-up between Business women and Andhra Pradesh State Financial Corporation to explore the emerging opportunities in fashion amd designing.
Pointing out that her background proved to be both a boon as well as bane, the young MP said she had stepped out in the last two years. ''When I can do something worthwhile, each one of you can also do it,'' Ms Purandreswari, who inaugurated a seminar on Emerging Opportunities in Fashion and Technology, said, hoping that fellow women would also do so to prove that they were no lesser than men.
Great Women, including former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had proved that they were on par or even better than men in intellect.
Recalling that women had been placed on high pedestal since ancient times and held in high esteem by social reformers as also men of words, she lamented that the view that women need to be protected by parents, husband and sons in different stages of life had been misconstrued.
