Sharmishtha Mukherjee took charge as the president of the Delhi Mahila Congress today at the Delhi Congress office here in the presence of senior leaders Ajay Maken and Sheila Dikshit.
Former Delhi chief minister Dikshit, who visited the Delhi Congress office after a long time, hoped that the Delhi Mahila Congress would gain in strength under Mukherjee.
"More and more women should be brought to politics and they should be given tickets for bringing them into the mainstream," she said on the occasion.
Sharmishtha Mukherjee, the daughter of former president Pranab Mukherjee, said she would work hard to strengthen the Delhi Mahila Congress at the grassroot-level and protect the rights of women.
