PM Modi pays tribute to Mulayam Singh Yadav

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took it to Twitter and remembered the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister in a series of tweets.

“Shri Mulayam Singh Yadav Ji was a remarkable personality. He was widely admired as a humble and grounded leader who was sensitive to people’s problems. He served people diligently and devoted his life towards popularising the ideals of Loknayak JP and Dr. Lohia,” he wrote.

“Mulayam Singh Yadav Ji distinguished himself in UP and national politics. He was a key soldier for democracy during the Emergency. As Defence Minister, he worked for a stronger India. His Parliamentary interventions were insightful and emphasised on furthering national interest.”

While offering condolences to Mulayam Singh’s family, he said, “I had many interactions with Mulayam Singh Yadav Ji when we served as Chief Ministers of our respective states. The close association continued and I always looked forward to hearing his views. His demise pains me. Condolences to his family and lakhs of supporters. Om Shanti.”

Mulayam Singh Yadav’s son Akhilesh Yadav confirmed the news of the veteran politician’s demise on Twitter.

“My respected father and everyone’s leader is no more,” he tweeted.

The political journey of ‘Neta Ji’

Mulayam Singh Yadav was born on November 22, 1939. The senior politician was the supremo of the Samajwadi Party. He represented Mainpuri constituency of Uttar Pradesh when he was a member of Lok Sabha. The three-time Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Mulayam Singh Yadav rose in UP politics after the 1970s.

He emerged as a socialist leader and soon established himself as an OBC stalwart as he captured the political space vacated by the Congress. In 1989, he took oath as the 15th Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. The Congress was voted out that year and failed to return to power in UP ever since.
