Margaret Alva has been a politician for almost 50 years. Since she entered the fray in 1969, she has been a key member of the Congress party, and served several terms as a Union Minister and state Governor. In this episode of Power Women With Anna MM Vetticad, Alva tells us what it is to be a woman in politics, provides rare insights into her high-profile falling out with Sonia Gandhi in 2008, discusses the urgent need for introspection within the Congress and hints at what we can expect in her coming autobiography.
