Career

Sushma Swaraj has been associated with politics since 1970. During her college days, she joined the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the RSS. During the Emergency period of 1975-1977, Sushma was included in the legal team of George Fernandes. It led her to be actively involved in politics. She became a part of Jayaprakash Narayan’s Total Revolution Movement. She organized many protests against the Indira Gandhi Government.
