Articles Powerful women in Indian Politics

Indian politics cannot be complete without the role of females in the present scenario. Late Smt. Indira Gandhi has been considered as the most powerful prime minister that India has ever produced.

Right now, in India there are three powerful women leaders who hold the key to any government formation. They are also the most powerful leaders in their political outfits.

Mrs Sonia Gandhi (Congress President)

She needs no introduction in political arena. She is the daughter in law of Late Smt. Indira Gandhi and wife of Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi who have remained central to Congress Governments. After the death of her husband she remained away from politics for many years. Thereafter, because of bad performance of congress in the elections she accepted the post of party president and helped congress reorganize itself. She has now become the most powerful leader of the party and the nation. The opposition alleges that the present congress government works under her commands.

In her horoscope Cancer is the sign rising in the lagna. Cancer Lagna is the lagna of royalty. Her horoscope makes her a natural leader. Her Moon sign is Gemini and Vedic Sun sign is Scorpio. The dasa running right now is of Mercury / Jupiter till 17th December 2009. Jupiter is involved in rajya yoga indicating that the period right now is favorable for her. Because she is the president of the Indian National Congress, the party will get more seats in the ongoing election. The Mahadasa running right now is of Mercury that happens to be placed in the 5th house and the 5th house signifies children.  She rejected the Prime Ministers post but groomed her children well in politics. In future both her children will play more active role in Indian Politics and she will remain relevant as a great leader.

Ms. J. Jayalalitha (AIDMK)

She was a famous film star before entering into politics. She is the incumbent general secretary of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIDMK) in the state of Tamil Nadu. She is popularly called Amma (mother) and Puratchi Thalaivi (Revolutionary Leader) by her followers.

In her horoscope Gemini was rising in the lagna. Moon is placed in Leo rashi. Sun is placed in Aquarius. The dasa running right now is of Rahu / Sun from 23/02/2009 to 17/01/2010. Sun is the 3rd lord placed in house of fortune indicating that in her leadership AIDMK will give tough fight to Karunanidhi. However, Jayalalitha is passing through the period of Sadhe Saati. There can be health related concerns for her during the current transit of Saturn. Electoral prospects for her are however good.

Ms. Mayawati (Bahujan Samaj Party)

She is the current Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. She has been the Chief Minister during three other short tenures in the past but her party holds absolute majority in the state as of date. She is the highest income-tax payer among all politicians in India paying Rs. 26 crore for year 2007-08. Coming from a dalit family, Mayawati made her way to the seat of chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state of India.

In her horoscope Capricorn was rising in the lagna. Moon is placed in Capricorn rashi. Sun is placed in Capricorn. The dasa running on her right now is of Saturn / Moon from 18/05/2008 to 18/12/2009. Moon is placed in the lagna and is placed well from the Mahadasa lord Saturn. Hence, electoral prospects for her are good. She will win more seats during this election as compared to the last election. However, she is having the transit of Saturn from the 8th house from Lagna and Moon; hence health issues can be there. She is advised to choose her ally carefully. It is likely that her allies may desert her. She will play a very important role in the formation of the next government in India.
