New Delhi, Feb 13: Actress Kirron Kher Thursday said that the country deserves capable ministers and that there is no substitute for hard work for either men or women.
"Male or female candidates, both have to work hard. You can't force people on the country if they are not skilled," she said.
Kirron, who joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2009, praised the party for giving opportunities to women.
"BJP has several women who are capable. Most spokespersons of BJP are women," Kirron said at Vote Lo Suraksha Do, a session held at the political conclave Panchayat Aaj Tak here.
Some of the prominent women leaders and spokespersons of BJP include Sushma Swaraj, Smriti Irani, Nirmala Sitaraman and Meenakshi Lekhi.
