From 1970 to 2012 major Political Career of Mulayam Singh Yadav

Samajwadi Party (SP) founder Mulayam Singh Yadav died at a hospital in Gurugram on Monday after several days in the ICU. SP chief and Yadav’s son Akhilesh confirmed the news of the Leader’s death on Twitter.

Mulayam Singh Yadav, the author of the SP and three-time Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, surfaced in the politics of Uttar Pradesh after the 1970s in a period of violent social and political bouleversement.

The Other Backward Classes( OBCs) began to gain political dominance in UP, sidelining the Congress party dominated by upper estate leaders. India’s most vibrant state was still witnessing violent collaborative polarization in the wake of the aggressive Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir crusade of the Bharatiya Janata Party( BJP).

Arising as a socialist leader, Mulayam soon established himself as an OBC stalwart, enwrapping the political space vacated by Congress. He was sworn in as the 15th CM of UP in 1989, marked when Congress failed to return to power in the state since it was suggested.

After the 1989 UP choices, Mulayam took over as principal minister with the outside support of the BJP as the Leader of the Janata Dal. He became chief minister for the alternate time as an SP leader in 1993 when the Kanshi Ram-led Bahujan Samaj Party( BSP) became his supporter. He took the pledge as principal minister for the third time in 2003 as the Leader of the SP-led coalition. Their three terms together were duration of about six times and nine months.

Wrestler-turned-schoolteacher Mulayam, born in Etawah on November 22, 1939, completed his Mama( Political Science) and.Ed degrees. He was first tagged MLA from Jaswantnagar in Etawah as a seeker of the Samyukta Socialist Party( SSP) in 1967 but lost the election in 1969 to Bishambhar Singh Yadav of Congress.

In the 1980 choices, Mulayam lost his seat to Congress’s Balram Singh Yadav when Congress made a comeback. He latterly switched to Lok Dal, was tagged as a seeker for the State Legislative Council, and became the Opposition Leader.

In the 1985 assembly election, Mulayam was tagged on a Lok Dal ticket from Jaswantnagar, and the Leader of the Opposition came.

In 1989, many months before the choices to the 10th UP Assembly, Mulayam joined the VP Singh- led Janata Dal and was appointed the chief of the UP unit. After rising as a prominent opposition face, he started the state-wide Kranti Rath Yatra. One of his rallies had a theme song, “ Naam Mulayam Singh Hai, But Kaam Bada Fauladi Hai.”

In this election, the Janata Dal surfaced as the single largest party, winning 208 out of 421 seats, falling short of the maturity. The BJP had won 57 hearts, and the BSP 13. Mulayam was formerly again tagged from Jaswantnagar on its ticket. He was sworn in as the Chief Minister on December 5, 1989.

Amid growing social fragmentation and the BJP inviting several-Yadav OBC gentries, Mulayam was decreasingly perceived as the Leader of Yadavs and Muslims. He tried to reach out to upper-estate communities to expand his social base, especially the Thakurs.

His third CM stint was told mainly by his coworker Late Amar Singh, who associated him with commercial and film circles.
In the 2012 choices, when the SP won maturity and formed its government, Mulayam handed over the arm of leadership to his son Akhilesh Yadav, allowing him to take over as the chief minister.
