Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri lauded the contribution of women work at the country's oil and gas installations. He shared images of women employees of the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation who work on offshore platforms. Mr Puri said these women remained on the drilling platforms for 60 to 70 days at a stretch even during the pandemic. He described them in a post on Instagram as “equal partners” in the country's progress. The social media post had a few images of the women employees in orange-colour safety gear, working and maintaining an offshore platform.

“The Super Women who ‘woman' our oil and gas installations. They didn't back down from staying 60-70 days at a stretch on offshore platforms during the pandemic. They are tough, committed, resilient and equal partners in India's progress,” Mr Puri said. “You make us proud. Take a bow.”
