About Charan Singh


Chaudhary Charan Singh (Hindi: चौधरी चरण सिंह Caudharī Caraṇ Siṅh; 23 December 1902 – 29 May 1987) was the seventh Prime Minister of the Republic of India, serving from 28 July 1979 until 14 January 1980. Born into a Jaat family of Tevatia clan in 1902[1][2], Charan Singh entered politics as part of the Independence Movement. After independence he became particularly notable in the 1950s for opposing and winning a battle against Nehru\s socialistic and collectivist land use policies, for the sake of the Indian Farmer. Popular especially among his native Jat community, his political base was Western Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, where that community was dominant. The leader of the Bharatiya Lok Dal, a major constituent of the Janata coalition, he was disappointed in his ambition to become Prime Minister in 1977 by Jayaprakash Narayan\s choice of Morarji
