Inclusive growth also means positions of powerThe post of the Mayor of the Chennai Corporation is a highly prestigious position and the lady selected by the party is just 28 years old. She belongs to the category of citizens who find their communities listed in the scheduled category for reservations in education, jobs and the like.
Very recently, even the Supreme Court has given a jundgement that real social upliftment can happen only when there is reservation for the oppressed. The lady under reference is not the only one woman. There are others selected by the DMK party to leadership positions in various positions. The highly dynamic Chief Minister, Mr.M.K.Stalin is very keen on good governance and leads from the front.
One can only hope that this younger generation will further improve the standards of public governance in Chennai metropolis and other cities of Tamil Nadu. Kerala had already done a similar experiment when the person selected was a very young girl, in her twenties. She is reportedly doing a good job.
Let such woman prove their competence.
