Who Is Mohan Yadav? 5 Facts About New Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister


New Delhi:
Mohan Yadav, a minister in the previous Shivraj Chouhan government, took charge as the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister in a grand event that was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Chief Ministers of BJP-ruled states.

Here are 5 facts on the new Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav:

  1. Mohan Yadav is considered to be close to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and hails from the Other Backward Classes (OBC) community which accounts for more than 48 per cent of the state’s population.

  2. His appointment is being widely seen as the end of the political road (at least in Madhya Pradesh) for his predecessor, Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

  3. The 58-year-old political career began with his first election as an MLA in 2013. He was re-elected in the subsequent 2018 elections.

  4. The MLA’s third win came in the just concluded Madhya Pradesh polls. Mohan Yadav successfully defended his seat in the Ujjain South constituency, winning by a margin of 12,941 votes against Congress candidate Chetan Premnarayan Yadav.

  5. Mr Yadav’s influence within the state’s political landscape was cemented when he was appointed a minister in Shivraj Chouhan’s 2020 government that was formed soon after Jyotiraditya Scindia pulled a switcheroo, bringing down the Kamal Nath government.
