pressbrief.in Indira Gandhi was one of the most charismatic and popular leaders of modern India. She was the Prime Minister of our country for more than a decade. Her ideas and vision not only influenced every sphere of public life, her style of governance changed the face of Indian politics also. Her policies left an imprint on world affairs too, particularly, the Non-alignment Movement. All policies of Indira Gandhi's like abolition of privy purses and privileges of Indian princes, bank nationalisation, progressive takeover of export and import trade, 'Garibi Hatao' campaign, 20-point programme had a touch of reformative zeal. Her 'Garibi Hatao' slogan and 20-point programme are still relevant and pursued by the Congress. She added stimulus to India's industrialization and food production through, among other things, the Green Revolution.
