Re-elected to the 15th Lok Sabha in 2009 & resigned form Lok Sabha in 2012. He took the charge as ‘Chief Minister of UP’ on 15th March, 2012.
Chaudhary Brahm Prakash Yadav (1918-1993) was a leader known for his self-less public service, social commitment and organizational abilities. He played an important role in the Individual Satyagraha Movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi in 1940 and was among the leaders of the underground activities in Delhi during the Quit India movement. He was imprisoned many times during the freedom struggle. In the post-independence era, he served as Minister in charge of Planning and Development as well as the first Chief Minister of Delhi from 1952-55. His stints in the Parliament twice won him acclamation as an able parliamentarian. He also made noteworthy contributions as the Union Cabinet Minister for Food, Agriculture, Irrigation and Cooperatives. The cause of depressed sections of the society, rural development and empowerment of the weaker sections were issues which were very close to the heart of Chaudhary Brahm Prakash. He was quick to realise the potential of cooperative societies in mitigating the hardships of the village folks. As early as in 1945, he started organising village and agriculture cooperatives. He was also a proponent of the Panchayati Raj institutions. He organised the National Union of Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Minorities in 1977 to work for the welfare of these weaker sections.
Lalu Prasad Yadav is a renouned politician from Bihar. He was the Minister of Railways from 2004 to 2009 in the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government, and the President of the Rashtriya Janata Dal. He is a Member of Parliament in the 15th Lok Sabha from the Saran constituency in Bihar. He is famous for his charismatic leadership and mass appeal. He served as the Chief Minister of Bihar from 1990 to 1997. Lalu Prasad Yadav was born in Phulwaria, in the Gopalganj district of Bihar. His father’s name was Kundan Rai and his mother’s name, Marachhiya Devi. He is a lawyer by proffesion. He holds Bachelor’s degree in Law (LLB) and a Masters in Political Science from B. N. College, Patna, Patna University. He turned down Patna University’s Honorary Doctorate in 2004. Lalu Prasad Yadav had his schooling, from 1st standard to 7th standard, at Bihar Military Police No-5 middle school. He married Rabri Devi on June 1, 1973. They have two sons and seven daughters. Lalu Prasad Yadav entered politics as General Secretary of the Patna University Students’ Union in 1970. He led the student movement inspired by Jai Prakash Narayan, Raj Narain, Karpoori Thakur and Satyendra Narayan Sinha. The former Chief Minister of Bihar and the then President of Bihar State Janata Party, Satyendra Narayan Sinha supported him as a candidate for the Lok Sabha and campaigned for him. He was elected as a member of the 9th Lok Sabha on a Janata Party ticket at the age 29, becoming one of the youngest member of the Indian Parliament at the time. He formed the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in 1997, after breaking away from the Janata Dal.
Rabri Devi (born 1959) served three terms as the Chief Minister, of Bihar, as a member of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, between 1997 and 2005. She is the wife of the renouned politician Lalu Prasad Yadav, former Chief Minister of Bihar and former Railway Minister of India. She had no prior experience in politics. The move fitted well with the needs of the government in power at the time as Lalu Prasad Yadav had to quit as C.M. after the infamous Fodder scam was revealed, but he managed to be in total control of affairs by giving his wife the coveted post of the head of the state government. It was alleged that he continued to act and administer as a de facto chief minister with his wife being a ceremonial head. She became the first woman chief minister of Bihar on 25 July 1997. Her first term ended on 12 February 1999, when the state was briefly under president’s rule. Her second term from 9 March 1999 to 3 March 2000. Her third (and longest) term began on 11 March 2000, and ended in 2005, when her party suffered great losses in state elections. In 2010 assembly election she lost from both of her constituencies (Raghopur and Sonpur). Rabri Devi married Lalu Prasad Yadav in 1973 at the age of 14. She has two sons and seven daughters.
Rao Birender Singh was born on 20 February, 1921 at Nangal Pathani, district Rewari. He was popularly known as Rao Saheb. After graduating from St. Stephen’s College (1942), he joined the Indian Army as an officer and served there for five years (1942-1947). The year 1945 was a crucial turning point in the life of Capt. Rao. Rani Nihal Kaur, widow of Rao Balbir Singh, the scion of the erstwhile ruling house of the Raos of Rewari adopted him. He was now master of enviable inheritance: pelf of his great grandfather Rao Tula Ram’s martyrdom, prestige of his grandfather Rao Yudhishter Singh’s social service, and power of his father Rao Balbir Singh’s politics. Soon after leaving the Army, Rao Sahib took to politics. He formed his own political outfit, Kisan-Mazdoor Party in 1951 to pursue his new ‘calling’. His’ first bid to enter the Punjab Legislature (1952) was not successful. But a sapient and quick learner, he succeeded to reach it (Punjab Legislative Council) quite easily in 1954. Two years later, he dismantled his party and joined Congress to become a deputy minister in the Pratap Singh Kairon ministry (April 1956). After a couple of months, he became a full-fledged cabinet minister. The during China war Chief Minister Kairon made him defence advisor to the Punjab Government. Punjab was bifurcated and Haryana was born on November 1, 1966. There was election to the Haryana Assembly in 1967. Rao Sahib successfully contested the election and reached the Assembly. However, on differences with Pt. Bhagwat Dayal Sharma, the then Chief Minister, he left the Congress and downed his ministry. He formed the Samyukta Vidhayak Dal (SVD) with other senior Haryana leaders and became first speaker (13 March, 1967) and then Chief Minister of the State (24 March to November 2, 1967). On the dissolution of the SVD, he formed his own organization, Vishal Haryana Party (in 1967) and carried out his political activities under it’s banner. He and some of his partymen won the 1968 election to the Haryana Assembly and occupied good space in the House. In 1970’s, he moved to the central politics after successfully contesting the Lok Sahba Elections in 1971 (VHP). But on Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s initiative, he merged his Vishal Haryana Party with the Congress (1978). Soon after, he fought two successful elections to the Lok Sabha, in 1980 and 1984, as a Congressman. He occupied an important position in Mrs. Gandhi’s cabinet, (1980-1984) twice, but for a brief period. While in the government, Rao Sahib served the poor to the best of his ability. He helped his State (Haryana) secure adequate Central funds for it’s development. As the Union irrigation minister, he got the historic Ravi-Beas Link Canal agreement signed on 31 December, 1981 by the chief ministers of the concerned States—Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan— for the good of the water deficit regions. A sense of uneasiness, somehow, came to have its grip over Rao Sahib during the second term in the Rajiv ministry. To get over the ‘feeling’, he left the ministry as well as Congress to try a new outfit – Janata Dal. He successfully contested the 1989 election to the Lok Sabha and became minister in the shortlived Chandra Shekhar Government (1990-91). Rao Birender Singh had inherited love and affection for the All India Yadav Mahasabha from his ancestors. His father, Rao Balbir Singh, was one of the founder of the Mahasabha. Rao Sahib also spared, understandably, no pains to strengthen and popularise the Mahasabha in its earlier days. In recognition to his services to the Mahasabha and the Yadav community, Rao Sahib got the highest honour of becoming the president of the Mahasabha five times in the year 1957, 1959, 1965, 1966 & 1967. In 1967 Rao Sahib wanted to be the permanent President of AIYM, but the AIYM leaders refused his proposal. Then he tried to form a parallel National Yadav Organisation, which was ultimately formed in 1973. The name of the organisation was "Barat Yadav Mahasabha" & he was the permanent president of it. The organisation was not at all populerised amongest the Yadavs. After the expiry of the term of the Ninth Lok Sahba (13 March 1991), Rao Sahib took practically sanyas from active politics. He looked after his educational institutions and other social outfits. At the age of eightyeight he died on 30 September, 2009.
