General Secretary on Sunday said that Pandava queen was the "first feminist in the world".

"was the first feminist in the world. She had five husbands; she won't listen to any of the five.

She only listened to (Lord) Krishna, who was a friend. But we never call her promiscuous," Madhav said at the one-day Indic festival here.

He said was "singularly responsible" for the war that led to the killing of 18 lakh persons on the battlefield. The war resulted from Draupadi's stubbornness, said Madhav, who has a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh background.
