Her NGO is called Manushi which is located in a four story building owned by her, just across the road from my house. She was quite forthcoming when I approached her for help for a girl who was being harassed by her powerful in-laws. They had filed a court case against her and had hired a famous lawyer to push the case. Kishwar put me in touch with a competent female lawyer who charged very reasonable amount. The lawyer totally turned the case in the girl's favor in a few months. Kishwar should have been recognized by Modi by giving her some government post, like chairperson of women and child commission or something. These are the type of people with whom an ecosystem can be built for BJP, but BJP has a habit of shunning its supporters and not reward them. This leads to bitterness. It is foolish of BJP. Arun Shourie, Chandan Mitra, Madhu Kishwar .. the list is long of people pushed to the wayside by BJP after it has won.
Sanjayji, there are hundreds of thousands of BJP karyakartas who do 1000x more for the party than someone like Madhu Kishwar, it is impossible to keep everyone happy. Within days of the cabinet formation in 2014 she started spewing venom on Smrit Irani , she has routinely attacked many who have steadfastly stood behind BJP and Modi through victories and defeats. As for Arun Shourie he is over 80 now and was well into his 70s when Modi took over, Shourie also came with a baggage of the controversial disinvestment of national assets , especially the ITDC hotels which were sold for a song during his time. As for SuSwamy the less said about him the better.
