At the age of 82, seasoned politician #Mulayam Singh Yadav passed away. The former #federal defence minister had been a patient for more than a fortnight at a private hospital close to Delhi.He was put on a ventilator after his condition got worse. On Monday morning, Akhilesh Yadav, his son and political heir apparent, announced his passing. One of the pillars of Indian politics has received accolades from politicians from all parties as well as from public figures and members of the general public. With a tweet commemorating his interactions with the seasoned leader, Prime Minister Narendra Modi started the tributes.
Yadav had been ill for a few years and had been in and out of hospitals frequently. He was a sitting member of parliament, although he was not very active and was not often seen. As his regional Samajwadi Party (SP), currently led by Akhilesh Yadav, remains a significant participant in Indian politics, he leaves behind a rich and contentious legacy. A generation of politicians, including Mulayam Singh Yadav, emerged from large-scale movements. His political manoeuvres, which were reputed to be masterful, kept both allies and opponents on their toes.
To stay relevant during his active career, he cleverly blended local and national politics. He became successful because of his drive and ability to recover from political losses that seemed hopeless. He served as the state’s chief minister three times during his lengthy career. He also held the position of defence minister for India. He had aspirations to lead India as prime minister, as do the majority of powerful regional leaders, but that desire was never realised.
