Shri Mulayam Singh Yadav Ji was born in Etawah on November 22, 1939. Fondly and reverently addressed as Netaji, he was greatly influenced by Shri Ram Manohar Lohia and joined the great socialist leader’s movement during the 1950s to fight for farmers’ rights. He was called ‘Little Napoleon’ by the former Prime Minister of India, Chaudhary Charan Singh.
He first became an MLA in the UP assembly in 1967 and was jailed during the Emergency in 1975. Then came the time when the Samajwadi Party came into being in October, 1992.

Under his instrumental and decisive leadership, the party has seen glorious terms and he continues to inspire all the party members to work and toil hard for the betterment of their motherland.
