This video of Nirmala Sitharaman, who was recently announced as the new Defence Minister of India, where she is seen making ‘Avakaya’ (mango pickle) is currently going viral.
Soon after the news about her elevation to the key post in PM Modi’s cabinet became official, people started digging her past so as to uncover exciting details about her. One such find is this 4-year-old video, which was shared on Youtube by her politician-husband Parakala Prabhakar.
What attracted everyone’s attention is Sitharaman, who was assigned the most responsible job of safeguarding the country, Defence ministry, making pickle sitting on floor as a very common housewife.
For the uninitiated, she is the only second woman to hold Defence ministry after Indira Gandhi.
