Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna The Chief Minister of UP, whose career ended by Amitabh Bachchan
Hemavati Nandan Bahuguna, called Chanakya of the Congress, vowed to eradicate the Congress in its last days. His son Vijay Bahuguna was fielded.
Vijay also became the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand. Joined BJP Hemvati’s daughter Rita Bahuguna also joined the BJP in 2016.
What was it like that Chanakya, who joined UP’s first assembly, was bent on ruining the Congress?
From the Congress, he was also the Chief Minister of UP and was also a minister at the Center. Why so angry?
The 1942 movement was revolutionary, became a prominent leader in UP politics
On 13 April 1919, Jallianwala Bagh was established. And on 25 April 1919, Hemwati Nandan was born in Budhani village of erstwhile Pauri district. It was the era of Aryasamaj, who wanted to revive the Indian tradition.
It was the era of Gandhi, who was going to give the politics of India in the hands of the villagers apart from the battle of the princely states.
So Hemvati had also studied at DAV College built with the same pride. It was during the study that Hemvati got in touch with Lal Bahadur Shastri. So it is obvious that interest has come in the politics of the country.
From 1936 to 1942, Hemwati Nandan was involved in student movements. It was at that time that he used to do as much as he could.
Hawaii’s work in the Quit India Movement of 1942 brought him popularity. The British kept a reward of 5 thousand on catching Hemvati alive or dead.
Finally, on 1 February 1943, Hemwati was arrested near Jama Masjid in Delhi. But as soon as he left in 1945, the band played again of the British. The country was also liberated immediately.
After that Hemwati became active in UP politics. He has been a member of the UP Congress Committee continuously since 1952. Was parliamentary secretary in 1957.
It is believed that the government, which could not be made a minister, gives this post to him. But this shows that it was not easy for the government to ignore Hemvati.
Promoted in 1958. Was Deputy Minister of Labor and Industry Department in the government. Then he held the post of UP Congress General Secretary from 1963 to 1969.
After the general elections in 1967, Bahuguna was elected the General Secretary of the All India Congress. This year a problem arose in Congress. Charan Singh left the Congress.
Then in 1969, there was a ruckus about Indira Gandhi. The Congress broke up into two parts. Leaders like Tribhuvan Narayan Singh went to Kamaraj’s syndicate group.
But Kamalapati Tripathi and Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna went with Indira Gandhi. Tribhuvan Narayan Singh lost to Ramkrishna Dwivedi, a journalist, in the by-election while being the Chief Minister.
After this Kamalapati Tripathi was made the Chief Minister of UP. But due to the PAC rebellion, he also had to step down. Apart from the rebellion, there were allegations of corruption on the Kamala government.
When UP’s condition was deteriorating, only Bahuguna got the command.
Kamalapati used to wear dhoti. Looked great. The administration was messed up. So there was a need for such a person who should also hold the rule and not even kiss in front of Indira.
Hemwati Nandan became MP for the first time in 1971. But he hoped that he would get a powerful position because of his continuous support of Indira.
But only junior ministers were able to become communications department. At that time, he was so angry that he had not taken charge of the minister for 15 days. So Indira gave them an independent charge after getting angry.
Apart from this, Hemvati was considered to be of Jagjivan Ram Camp. So Indira Gandhi was advised to make her the Chief Minister of UP, she will become your confidant. Hemwati became MLA from Bara.
The interesting thing is that Kamalapati and Hemvati had a very good relationship. Apart from her father, Hemvati used to touch only Kamalapati’s feet. Bahuguna once ate cannabis at the behest of Tripathi.
Kamla also said yes in Bahuguna’s name. Bahuguna soon took over the situation in UP and won the elections in the state after six months.
It is also said that by using the deceit of former opposition chief minister Chandrabhanu Gupta, the bail was also confiscated.
There are legends that Chandrabhanu Gupta used to ask him – Ray Natwar Lal, if beat it is fine, but how did I confiscate the bail, tell me this.
Bahuguna’s answer was – Your only taught ambush is Guru Dev. (From the Facebook wall of senior journalist and painter Rajiv Nayan Bahuguna)
But in 1975, Indira Gandhi surprised the country and imposed an emergency in the country. Many Congress leaders were also irritated by this. But no one had the courage to speak in front of Indira.
Almost all were with Indira. Everyone thought that later everyone will be given a big post. Meanwhile, Bahuguna was reduced from Indira to three-five in 1975.
Had to resign It is also said that Sanjay Gandhi’s laughter made him very sad. Sanjay did not understand anyone. Before this, he had also designed on 4 March 1974.
But on 5 March 1974, the oath of Chief Minister was again administered. Then when the Lok Sabha elections were announced in 1977, Bahuguna rebelled against the Congress for the first time.
Bahuguna formed Congress for Democracy Party with former Defense Minister Jagjivan Ram. This party got 28 seats in that election, which was later merged with the Janata Dal.
Bahuguna won the four Lok Sabha seats of today’s Uttarakhand under the banner of this party. Bahuguna was also the Finance Minister of the country when Chaudhary Charan Singh was Prime Minister.
Veteran journalist Karanjia, editor of the English Weekly Blitz (BLITZ), while addressing a seminar in the presence of Russian leaders and ambassadors, declared Bahuguna a capable material for the post of Prime Minister of the country. There was an uproar in the media.
It is said that angered by this, Indira Gandhi handed over the responsibility of keeping watch over Bahuguna to her favorite Yashpal Kapoor. Kapoor started living in Lucknow.
It is said that after one day, Bahuguna threw Yashpal Kapoor’s Boria-bed out of his Chief Minister’s residence in Lucknow.
Jayaprakash Narayan waged a war against Indira in opposition to the Emergency. In this connection, he also went to Lucknow.
Bahuguna did not stop him. Rather gave red carpet welcome. Jayaprakash Narayan was so impressed that not a single demonstration was held against the UP government. Are back But Indira became angry with Bahuguna.
Rejoined Congress, but Bachchan ended his career
However, after the Janata Party split, Bahuguna rejoined the Congress just before the 1980 Lok Sabha elections. When the mid-term elections were held in 1980, Indira Gandhi invited Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna to join the Congress and made her the Chief General Secretary.
In the midterm elections in 1980, Bahuguna conducted the election campaign with full force. Bahuguna won from Garhwal.
After the elections of 1980, Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna had said about Chaudhary Charan Singh, “This Chaudhary has destroyed our life.” We only know how we live in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, and Rajasthan. The six-year-old boy of the Yadavs also used to stand watching our party’s jeep and, even though Chaudhary was criticized, his name used to run a brick. ‘
Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna once said – Opposition is in worse condition. The Prime Minister has not called that the opposing leaders approach the dog like a tail.
After the election, the Congress government came to the center. But they did not find a place in the cabinet. Indira had a unique way of revenge.
To insult Within six months, Bahuguna left the membership of the Lok Sabha along with the Congress party. He also won the by-election in this seat in Allahabad in 1982.
But the election of 1984 came as a call for him. Rajiv Gandhi raised Amitabh Bachchan. But Bahuguna’s political stature was very big. Bahuguna had also campaigned against Amitabh by pressing-
Sandalwood of Hemwati Nandan Allahabad.There is no strength in the claws, the screws are stuck in the claws.It is not easy to come to the Parliament, hit sing a song.
Bachchan defeated Bahuguna by 1 lakh 87 thousand votes. Bahuguna left the Congress and came to the Lok Dal. Here Devi Lal and Sharad Yadav started making serious allegations against them, due to which they were broken from inside.
After this defeat, Bahuguna retired from politics. Started doing environmental protection works. After 3 years, Amitabh left the seat, retired from politics. And at the same time Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna died. What to say about politics
Bahuguna had undergone bypass surgery. Doctors said that there is no need to get another one. If you stay away from politics, you will be comfortable.
But Bahuguna was not allowed to sit comfortably. He told the doctors that Bahuguna samosa is not born to eat and have fun. I will get the operation done.
