Furthermore, with the passing away of Netaji, the nation has lost a political stalwart, one of the most experienced leaders in today’s era. Let’s have a look at Mulayam Singh Yadav alias “Netaji’s” journey:

Netaji had vast political experience. He was first elected as an MLA in 1967 and served for eight times. Moreover, in the national emergency of 1975, Mulayam opposed the then Congress government, raising his voice in support of Jaiprakash Narayan. Subsequently, he was even arrested and was in custody for 19 months! 

He was one of the most senior MPs in the current Lok Sabha, having a vast political experience. Initially, Mulayam Singh was an Indian wrestler, a “pahalwan”, who then turned a politician, inspired by Shri Ram Manohar Lohia. 

Apart from being a three-time chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, he even served as a (MP) member of parliament for various times, and was currently the Lok Sabha MP from Mainpuri, one of the strongholds of Yadav family. Furthermore, he was amongst those few leaders who were a part of Indian politics since the Indira Gandhi era. 

Despite the doctors trying their best, they couldn’t save Mr. Mulayam. With his demise, there’s a wave of devastation amongst his fans and supporters from across the country. Apart from prime minister Narendra Modi, defence minister Rajnath Singh and home minister Amit Shah, the Congress leadership also expressed grief over Netaji’s demise.
