Mulayam Singh Yadav has been receiving life-saving treatment at Gurugram’s Medanta Hospital for days and was in a critical state. Then, in six weeks, he would turn 83.
Gurgaon: Mulayam Singh Yadav, the founder of the Samajwadi Party and three-time chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, passed away this morning after spending weeks in the hospital. He was 82.
Akhilesh Yadav, son of Mulayam Singh, was quoted by the Samajwadi Party as stating, My esteemed father and everyone’s Neta-ji has passed away.
The passing of Mulayam Singh Yadav saddens me; he was a brilliant individual who was revered for being a modest and steady leader, wrote Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was among the first to post a tribute.
He claimed to have a wonderful personality and to be highly regarded as a modest and steady leader.
The chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Aditanath, announced a three-day period of mourning and expressed his heartfelt sorrow. In his dying days, Mulayam Singh received numerous visits from leaders. His son Akhilesh has been in leadership of the party since 2017, and despite taking a break from active politics for a spell, he is still recognised as one of the country’s most significant opposition figures. His son and the Samajwadi Party continued to refer to him as Neta-ji.
From 1996 to 1998, Mulayam Singh, a well-known politician in Uttar Pradesh, was the country’s defence minister.
Mulayam Singh, according to PM Modi, fought for a more powerful India while serving as the country’s defence minister.
In parliament in 2019, Mulayam Singh praised PM Modi and said he should be re-elected after the general election. The opposing benches were in disbelief.
Born on November 22nd, 1939, Mulayam Singh first held the office of MLA in 1967. When Mulayam Singh was serving his second term as an MLA, then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi proclaimed the Emergency, sending him to prison among other opposition leaders.
Mulayam Singh was elected seven times to the Lok Sabha and ten times as an MLA.
Mulayam Singh, a former wrestler, was renowned as a shrewd politician who didn’t hesitate when it came to making agreements, even with enmity rivals.
He occasionally teamed up with Mayawati’s BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party), the BJP, or the Congress to gain control of Uttar Pradesh.
Throughout his lengthy career, he belonged to a number of political organisations, including the Sanyukt Socialist Party of his mentor Ram Manohar Lohia, the Bharatiya Kranti Dal of Charan Singh, the Bharatiya Lok Dal, and the Samajwadi Janata Party. In 1992, he established the Samajwadi Party. Mulayam Singh briefly ran for prime minister in 1996 when opposition groups sought to create a non-BJP rival to the Congress.
Mulayam Singh has watched in recent years as his party, which he established, has fallen into the hands of his son Akhilesh Yadav, who took over as leader in 2017 following a coup.
