Mamata Banerjee:

Famously known as Mamata didi, Mamata Banerjee is the first woman CM (Chief Minister) of West Bengal. She dethroned the 34-year-old government in the state and then elected as the CM of West Bengal. With coercing us to put her name in the list of top 5 most inspirational women in the Indian politics she also held the position of the first woman to be elected as the railway minister of the country.
