She was doing rather well as the union minister prior to bifurcation in the Congress government. Then bifurcation happened and Purandareswari jumped into BJP. Since then, things haven’t been going her way. First, she lost in the general elections and now Prime Minister Modi has refused to make her the Women’s Commission chairman and gave the post to another candidate.
Though Venkaiah Naidu tried his best to convince Modi, he stuck to his decision. Apparently, Venkaiah asked that Purandareswari must be given another commission’s post. But Venkaiah does not seem to be getting his way in the new government.
Though Venkaiah is quite clear about using people like Purandareswari, he is unable to get suitable posts for them. So the talk in political circles is that while Modi knows how to use Venkaiah, the latter is not capable of getting his way with Modi.
