Sharad Yadav Smriti Shesh: When he resigned from the Lok Sabha for principles


When resigned from Lok Sabha

Sharad Yadav was born in a farming family in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh. His life was deeply influenced by the pastoral world. Even after studying engineering, English could not dominate him. He kept on wearing dhoti-kurta throughout his life. There was a clear influence of the regional language in his speech. Khanti was a socialist by temperament. Never bothered about name and fame. In 1974, he reached the Lok Sabha after winning the by-election from Jabalpur. Then his age was only 27 years. The Lok Sabha was elected in 1971 and its term was till 1976. Sharad Yadav was to remain an MP till 1976. But Indira Gandhi extended the tenure of the Parliament for one more year (1977) during the Emergency. Then Sharad Yadav opposed it. He said, I have got the mandate till 1976 only. Then why should I be an MP for more than this? Then he resigned from the Lok Sabha membership along with senior socialist leader Madhu Limaye.

Jabalpur is considered the educational and cultural capital of Madhya Pradesh. People from far flung areas of the state come here to study. Sharad Yadav came to Jabalpur from Hoshangabad after completing his schooling. The Samajwadi Party formed its youth wing, the Yuvajan Sabha, in 1964. The Yuvajan Sabha was expanding among the college students. Sharad Yadav joined this organization during his college studies. Then socialist thinker Kishan Patnaik was very popular among the students. After becoming active in student politics, he became the President of Jabalpur University Students Union. After becoming a Member of Parliament in 1974, he dominated the sky of Indian politics. At that time Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar were nowhere in the scenario of parliamentary politics. While Sharad Yadav had become a symbol of change. When the Janata government collapsed in 1979, according to status, Sharad Yadav should have been established as the rightful successor of JP. But this could not be possible due to his nature and destiny.

Sharad Yadav, who considered the ideals of Ram Manohar Lohia as the basis of his politics, was completely different from his contemporary socialist leaders. Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar, who call themselves Lohiaists, formed their own political parties for different reasons. They could not live together. While Sharad Yadav kept wandering from this party to that party in search of socialism. He formed the party when his political defeat was near. Being cut off from his native soil (Madhya Pradesh), he was always considered an outsider in socialist parties. Some leaders used them and then left them on the margins.

Mandal reservation was implemented in 1990. Sharad Yadav also had an important role in this. He was the pioneer of Mandalism. Despite this, he lost the Lok Sabha election in 1991 from Budaun. Sharad Yadav’s defeat in the wave of Mandalism was a big political event. Later he blamed Mulayam Singh Yadav for his defeat. This defeat forced him to come to Bihar. Then Lalu Yadav called him to Bihar in 1991 itself to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Madhepura. At that time the Lok Sabha elections were held in Madhepura as per schedule. That’s why Sharad Yadav got a chance to try his luck again. He won but after that his politics became ‘parasitic’.

He never tried to become a Yadav leader by donning a socialist cloak like Mulayam Singh Yadav and Lalu Yadav. Never kept personal interest ahead for the fulfillment of his political interests. It is ironical that the people whom Sharad Yadav raised in politics later insulted him. He became dependent on Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar for his politics, due to which his vast aura gradually lost its sheen. What Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar did to him is well known. People who know Sharad Yadav closely say that if he had stayed in Jabalpur or Hoshangabad, he might have remained at the top of politics all his life. His going to Uttar Pradesh or Bihar was a big mistake. Sharad Yadav lost the Lok Sabha election in 1980 from Jabalpur. JP had passed away. The Janata Party had split. In such a situation, the new path of politics that he chose did not prove to be right for long term politics.

Sharad Yadav’s politics flourished on the land of non-Congressism, later he became close to the same Congress. Sharad Yadav, who opposed the autocratic power of Indira Gandhi, was accused of being a supporter of Sonia Gandhi. Former President Abdul APJ Kalam wrote in his book that Sharad Yadav was in favor of making Sonia Gandhi the Prime Minister in 2004. They wanted Sonia Gandhi to be sworn in as the Prime Minister. When Sonia Gandhi was strongly opposed on the issue of foreign origin at that time. Former President Kalam has written a book Turning Points. This book was published in 2012. Sharad Yadav after the disclosure of this book. Was very angry on Kalam.
